While a lot of people talk about the financial benefits of a remote team, that’s actually NOT the reason why Ben Congleton, the CEO and Co-Founder of Olark, and his team decided to build a remote team. You’ve probably also heard over and over again the importance of company culture, but Ben actually breaks down what him and his team at Olark do to build a strong company culture! During the show we covered the following 3 misconceptions people have about remote working: 1. Employees won’t be as productive and progress will stagnate 2. Communication between employees and teams will break down 3. A remote team will be devoid of culture In the pilot episode of FemgineerTV Ben and I tackled each of these misconceptions. And Ben shares how he and his co-founders have built an amazing remote team of 30-people, which spans San Francisco to Europe.
