Remote-first: How Ziflow built an all-remote team

“How do we keep working efficiently when we can’t go to the office?”

That’s on the mind of almost every manager and executive this week. Even though remote work has become a rising option for many teams in the past few years, the global crisis around COVID-19 has shockingly and very quickly upended the traditional workforce model across industries.

So many organizations are now scrambling to figure out work-from-home scenarios and implement remote collaboration policies that will minimize the ongoing disruption to the business and employees’ lives.

At Ziflow, we’re part of a growing population of companies that is 100% remote, and because our team has worked this way since the day we launched Ziflow, we’ve refined a company-wide remote work strategy that ensures our global marketing, product development, sales, and customer service teams operate as one productive unit every day to reach our goals. If this sounds like the situation you and your team has just been thrust into, keep reading for some helpful guidance on how creative teams can make the jump to remote collaboration.
