COVID threw the world for a loop. Thousands of folks have been forced into remote work. It can be hard and not everybody is built for it. But if you’ve been forced into remote work, how can you get the most out of it? 

Greg Hanover, CEO at Liveops, wrote a stellar blog post about the five things nobody will tell you about succeeding a remote work. So consider this your cheat code:

1. Remote work is not a 1-1 replacement for an office job.

It’s far easier to stay motivated at the office, be productive, and stay efficient. It’s far more flexible, and requires a much different way of thinking. 

2. Virtual work is different from WFH work.

WFH is a component of virtual work, but the two are not the same. They require different skill sets, and most importantly, the right talent to make the job work. 

3. Make the work work for you.

How are you setting yourself up for success? What barriers do you need to remove in order to be the most successful? 

4. Build your virtual network.

Remote work can become incredibly isolating and lonely, if you let it. Look for ways to stay connected. Virtual happy hours, informal check-ins, whatever it takes. 

5. Give yourself time to adapt.

It’s going to take time to get used to it, and that’s okay.
