Sara Ferraioli, a Partner and Managing Director within WinterWyman’s Human Resources division, shares the key traits to look for when hiring remote employees for your team.
Remote work isn’t for everyone. Your candidate may be perfect on paper, but you need to go beyond skills and experience to ensure that the candidate is up for the challenge of working away from the team.
Dig into the candidate’s experience – find out how they were managed and how they stay motivated.
Communication is one of the most important traits of vetting a successful remote employee. During the interview process, I like to take the time to consider how the candidate has communicated via email, over the phone and in person. I do this to ensure the candidate is concise, clear and timely.
Remote work is not for everyone. Make sure you do your research and ask specific questions to ensure a successful hire.Hiring top talent | Interviewing tips for employers | Video | Working remotely
