Question.

How can we maximize employee performance and productivity in a fully remote work environment. We are witnessing a lull phase internally and have tried stand ups, weekend binge sessions, strict log off times and open comms. Still not working out!

From Linkedin (Nishant Shukla of Examarly). So I made a completely remote team. The top criteria was that they should have themselves experienced the problem we are solving. Divided into very small teams and gave full autonomy to team leads. Within the teams too every person has full autonomy and they own and decide their timing and workload. It's also part time work for now. I did face a bit of lull, to counter it we started something like weekly reporting where you got to know the top performers from each team. I personally spent some time talking with few people and also conducting some meetings of the micro teams where we start off with a very random discussion of how their days and going and some fun and leg pulling. This has bonded all teams really well like a family. So in all, a very friendly work environment, very close alignment to the vision, direct access to the top position holders, full ownership of everything you do, family like feeling overall and in your micro team, picking people hungry to get experience. Might face a lull later, but for now things are smooth.
