Turing Announces the Launch of the Remote Work Guide
The past couple of years have driven a rapid — and in many cases, unplanned — shift to remote work worldwide. We now live in a remote-first world. Every company is in a race to reap the benefits of remote engineering talent.
Organizations are struggling to rent office space and recruit great talent. Employees want flexibility in their work. They want to be with their families and bring down their commute to a minimum. The rising costs, hiring pressures, and cloud-based tools have made remote work an excellent choice.
What is the Remote Work Guide?
The Remote Work Guide is a free, comprehensive handbook for building and managing remote teams. The guide breaks down the benefits of working remotely and shares tips to overcome the most prevalent remote work challenges. It also outlines practical strategies for leveraging remote potential to its fullest.
The guide shares tips rooted in Turing’s years of experience building a remote team of over 1000 employees and a talent pool of over 1.5 million remote developers.
Turing hopes employers and employees looking to enhance their remote work processes can pick up new suggestions from the guide.

How can the Remote Work Guide help you?
The growing preferences for remote are paving the way for a new work paradigm that prioritizes flexible work options. Subsequently, companies looking to attract the best talent must acknowledge how and when employees work best and alter their strategies accordingly.
But optimizing business processes for the remote setup requires knowledge and careful planning.
And the Remote Work Guide aims to help you with just that!
Here’s what the guide includes.

It’s like an actual map that allows you to navigate the expansive landscape of applications based on their purpose, i.e., the unique function they hold in the remote employment life cycle.
In addition, part five also shares a list of boundaryless companies Turing admires. Lastly, the section overviews Turing’s boundaryless work values.
Part Six: The Remote Work GlossaryPart six is a dictionary (of sorts) of the various remote work terms Turing, and most remote companies use.
