Key insights and tips for building and scaling a business remotely

Ricardo Fenandez knows a thing or two about remote work. He’s spent over 10 years working remotely, and has worked for more than 6 years managing and scaling remote teams in 8 countries and 10 locations. Currently he’s the managing director at leading digital hospitality brand Limehome and he joins Maddie on The State Of Work to share his insights and years of experience. 

Building and scaling a remote team requires a new way of thinking about recruitment, onboarding, leadership and operations, whether you were already leading or part of a remote team pre-COVID, or have had a rapid transition into this new style of working.

It sounds simple on paper – work with the best talent from all over the world, and employees can work from anywhere and anytime. However, this presents a new set of challenges for businesses from the complexities of compliance to the operational challenges of setting up local offices, doing business in multiple time zones and keeping remote workers motivated and engaged. But with careful planning, the many benefits of remote work benefit both the worker and the business.

Listen to Maddie and Ricardo as they discuss the challenges of business development, the value of virtual team building, the future of coworking and hybrid offices, as well as building and scaling remote teams during a global pandemic.
