Managing a workforce — without a worksite
Telecommuting has become, if not exactly old hat, an accepted practice at many workplaces. And an increasing number of employers are taking it one step further: Everyone telecommutes. In this setting, workers are not so much "remote" which implies distance from some central location as "distributed." How does a company become fully distributed? What are the pros and cons? And are there lessons to take back for more traditional employers? Three fully distributed companies. Nectar Sleep, a premium mattress retailer, has always had a fully distributed workforce, according to Scott McLeod, its VP of Marketing. The company now has close to 200 employees worldwide, with hubs in San Francisco, New York City, Tel Aviv and London. PowerInbox, which helps publishers provide ads that are relevant to users, has about 40 employees; in its current iteration, it has always been fully distributed, CEO Jeff Kupietzky said. Most PowerInbox employees are scattered around the U.S.
