How to get the best out of virtual teams

by Andreas Eichhorn

Working from home is still somewhat of a controversial issue. Many millennials already consider it part of daily life, whereas in conservative businesses, people are still rather skeptical about it.

While some companies deal rather well with the requirement to have employees work from home, others are simply overwhelmed by this development. Especially teamwork among colleagues becomes quite challenging in such a situation: no more office grapevine, no informal chats while making coffee, no more joking with coworkers.
