Team recognition was easy when we are based out of a single location. But in the last quarter we are working out of multiple locations. How do I encourage and motivate my remote team when they are not physically present at our office?
Recognition for remote teams has to be initiated from the management side. You can use tools that helps you understand and stay updated over the engagement of the team .
Based on the metrics, you decide on how to recognise them. For people feeling low, you reward them with something that will cheer them up or given them a break and clear their head. As for people who are doing really well make sure you let them know you are aware and appreciate them.
Some tools allows you to reward, appreciate based on the metrics through the tool itself. Check out UnderstandBetter.
