Hosting companies build a reputation based on stable, responsive servers and excellent customer service.
As your business grows, you need more people to maintain the same quality of service. Although you can employ an in-house team of people to help you, this approach can be expensive. Instead, why not leverage the power of the Internet to help build and grow a remote workforce?
At HostingCon 2013, sit in on the “Making a Remote Workforce Happen” session with Douglas Hanna, CEO at A Small Orange. Douglas will share his experience in creating a remote workforce, giving you practical advice on starting your own team and keeping them productive over time.
Why should you choose to create a remote workforce?
At HostingCon 2012, Douglas helped attendees understand why a remote workforce is an excellent choice.
As with any aspect of growing and expanding your business, money is an important issue. Even if you only employ one team member in-house, the costs can quickly get out of control.
First you need a physical space for your in-house employee to work. You need office furniture and computer equipment along with many other costly expenses. In addition, standard employment usually calls for a big spend on recruitment, health insurance, and potential relocation. Each of these costs add up before you even begin thinking about the salary you would like to pay an employee.
Remote workforces tend to be more affordable as you have more flexibility when it comes to how you bring people into the team. With a remote workforce, you can offer contract or part-time positions, often without many of the key costs of in-house employment.
Of course, a remote workforce is not just more affordable. When you can choose people anywhere in the world, you can always find the specific expertise you need.
If you are looking for niche skills in customer service, technology, or any other area of your business, using a remote workforce gives you the opportunity to find the best people for the job, regardless of their physical location.
Smart businesses are moving to a remote model to give customers the best service without increasing costs. But how do you begin to engage your first remote employees and guarantee their performance?
