    Remote workers are also called virtual teams. They can be an excellent resource for business. This is because teams can be comprised of members who have the talent and expertise that may not be available within the company, the same city, or the same time zone. However, effectively managing remote teams can be a challenge for those handling them.

    A business can compensate to some degree for not having systems and processes only because people can talk to each other in person and look over each other’s shoulders. In a virtual team, each person is at different places. It is always preferable to establish clear remote-work policies and training in advance.
