Remote working has been a big change for many companies as they learn to adapt to this new model. While in some industries the shift has been met with resistance, others have embraced the opportunities that come with being able to employ the best talent from around the globe. Of course, for those of us who are used to brick-and-mortar office spaces where most colleagues are present and readily available to communicate with at a moment’s notice, working across time zones can prove challenging.
With individuals’ working hours varying across time zones, the overlap for collaborative working time is reduced significantly.

Instead, by making a few simple adjustments to the way we work, we can get the most from our teams and also minimize stress.
