Historically there has been a certain personality type who gravitated towards remote working. They represented approximately 15-20% of the workforce and self-selected that lifestyle and style of work.
With the majority of tech workers at home for the moment, and perhaps continuing into the future, a part of every company’s recruiting process should include evaluating someone’s ability to succeed in working from home.
The Self Management Group has a unique assessment tool to detect an individual’s ability to self-manage and work remotely.
Here’s a link to the sample report. You can specify the role you’re looking to hire for and the report will focus on the criteria for success. The assessment includes sales, sales management, management, leadership and services, Also included are coaching tools to help the individual through challenging times.
If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call. I’m licensed for the tool and am happy to help you in assessing its applicability.
