Over the last couple of weeks, I have been asked by many small business owners if and how the minimum wage increase affects them. The Fair Work Commission (FWC) delivered its annual wage review decision on 19 June 2020. Below is a brief insight into the considerations, determinations, and how this may impact your business.
A leader has different challenges when it comes to supervising employees remotely. It requires a different approach, which is a balanced mix of trust and supervision. So why does it pose a challenge?
Well, for starters, a leader can’t pop up to their team members’ desks and catch up with them to see how the day is going. And most importantly, it doesn’t allow both parties to build a healthy relationship.
Having managed global teams remotely, I realised that this wasn’t a skill I was taught but one I had picked up through my career. So then how would leaders who haven’t had global teams or worked remotely before manage? Given the current situation with COVID-19, it is a skill that most managers of local companies are learning as they go. Although managing teams remotely seems easy enough to do, it requires the right execution, as well as the commitment to make it work.
