Last year we saw many changes happen in the way we work and do business with one
another. Some companies laid off some personnel, while some companies hired
some. For this reason, remote workers are in high in demand. Now that business has to be done remotely, and workers had to start
working from home, leading remote teams effectively is even more important.
That was a smart move because moving business remotely has allowed many companies to stay in business and other smaller establishments to thrive. However, it’s still vital that companies evaluate employee performance, even if they’re working from home. It’s to make sure their team performs as efficiently as they can.

Work with your employee to set new goals based on the performance review. This is also helpful to get the employee involved in vocalizing exactly what they would like to achieve in the upcoming year. Schedule incremental checkpoints throughout the year, perhaps quarterly, to check on the status of each goal.
