Top Characteristics of the Most Effective Virtual Teams

Posted by Darleen DeRosa November 30, 2018

Advances in communications technology have made the virtual workplace a reality, allowing organizations to bring together talent from around the world in an effort to gain a competitive edge. Over 50 percent of professionals around the world spend at least half the week working remotely, with an increasing number of them never setting foot inside a traditional office.

Virtual teams offer immense benefits for many companies, delivering cost savings, flexibility, and enhanced productivity. Cloud-based productivity software makes it easier than ever for organizations to support virtual work and monitor progress no matter where team members are located.
