7 years of experience working in a remote framework

At Cleverclip we have been working in a remote work environment for 7 years. Not only do we have different talents, but we also write, design, plan and produce from different locations. And that is exactly what has proven to be successful: Thanks to Remote Work we are even more productive, creative and above all, happier.

As pioneers of the Remote Work culture in Switzerland, we have been able to share our know-how on numerous occasions in the form of lectures at Rochester Bern, talks at the Swiss Innovation Forum or articles on various news platforms. The focus is always the same: How do we manage to function so well with our more than 40 employees spread around the world?

Having worked with hundreds of companies of different industries and sizes, we have gained unique expertise on how individual companies could achieve better results in a remote work environment. And we want to share that knowledge on a one-to-one basis.

The meaning of working remotely

In a nutshell: Remote work refers to a job that is done outside of the office.

There are various types of remote work. Some people are allowed to work remotely for a day or two each week. Others are allowed to be away as often as they’d like. Working from home is nowadays more or less accepted, as smart businesses have caught onto the benefits of not having to house employees in expensive offices.

The flexible workspace not only cuts operational costs significantly but also allows for other very important things, like access to a far greater talent pool, because candidates do not have to live within commuting distance of the office anymore.

Transitioning to a remote working framework

The number of organizations that offer flexible or completely remote work options increased by 40 percent over the past five years. Companies transitioning to remote work stand to benefit greatly when it comes to hiring top talent and keeping their employees happy.

However, taking away the office and sending off employees to work remotely is not an easy undertaking. It requires significant planning, preparation and adjustments as you go along. Businesses are made out of people, therefore there is not just a one-size-fits-all type of solution.

It’s a challenging process that requires openess from both the employer and employee to make it work. We’re here to help you with valuable advice in how to take such leap.

Where can we help with this transition?

Having worked with hundreds of different businesses, allowed us to have developed valuable expertise on several organizational components.

WORK ORGANIZATION

There is no denying that a remote worker arrangement is very different from an in-house office set up. This is not necessarily a bad thing if you acknowledge the need to rethink the way you manage your business in the first place.

Work Processes

When you’re part of a remote team you need to make sure everyone is doing each task properly. The best way to do so is to stick to the process.

Tools

DELL

“Our employees really value flexible work! Our employees have told us time and time again that they appreciate being treated like adults. They like to self-monitor, and that would include how they pace themselves, what times of day they work, where they choose to work from.”

Jennifer Jones Newbill

Director, Global Employment Brand

“Telecommuting, one of many forms of work-life flexibility, should no longer be viewed as a nice-to-have, optional perk mostly used by working moms. These common stereotypes don’t match reality—allowing employees to work remotely is a core business strategy today… We need to de-parent, de-gender, and de-age the perception of the flexible worker.”

Monique

SAP

“You are enabled to really attract the best talent to your organization. If you are not limited by a specific office location, you can look anywhere in the country or anywhere on the globe.”

Nicole McCabe

Director of Global Diversity and Inclusion

“If you are working effectively as a flexible worker you may not be physically seen as much as you would do if you were working full-time in the office, but that doesn’t mean your results are actually any different.”

All these are misconceptions that arise in connection with Remote Work. They are simply old ways of thinking that have nothing in common with reality.

Our consulting service is tailored to each business needs and the degree of involvement you'll need from our consultants. The best way to go with it is to reach out to a consultant and tell us about your business, challenge and what you already have in place.
