Five keys to success for the virtual workforce

"Today I think it’s safe to say that a majority of the tasks that an individual needs to complete can be done just as effectively sitting on a beach in Maui as they can sitting in a cubicle."

That's a well-put line from Jacob Morgan. I wish I were sitting on a beach in Maui right now. But I don't think our COO Reg Best would be happy if I took another summer vacation. My wife and kids -- should I decide to bring them -- yes. Reg, no. J/k ;-)

Anyway, my point isn't that the beach is a cool place to work. It's that our workforce is more mobile than ever, and remote working continues to gain in popularity.

And in his post, Jacob breaks down what he finds to be the five crucial elements to a successful virtual workforce. They're worth a read.

What are your thoughts on the virtual workforce? What are your keys to success? I left my own in a comment on Jacob's post, but I'd be interested to see what you think as well.
