How to tackle time-zone constraints in remote work?
Find out how
Prioritize Asynchronous Work
Asynchronous work must take precedence while working with a remote team. You can get started with async standups on Slack.
Set & Respect Work Hours
The biggest obstacle in working with a team in different time zones is to align working hours. Set up a half-day overlap when the whole team is online for 2-4 hours.
Leverage Time Zone Tools
Instead of managing different time zones manually all the time, using a time zone tool like Boomerang will help you manage all the time zones straight.
Manage Meeting Schedules
In order to accommodate everyone's time zones, schedule meetings accordingly. At the same time, record meetings for those who cannot attend.
Respect Cultural Norms
Working across countries and cultures is another aspect of internationally distributed teams. Make it a priority to allow your employees to take off holidays based on their country.
Organize Offsite Retreats
Prepare an offsite retreat for the team to come together and spend some quality time together while also tackling some professional difficulties.
