Hot-button topic boiled down to the basics of human psychology. As remote work becomes increasingly the norm, some companies are still struggling to wrap their head around it and are losing employees as a consequence. By bringing the conversation back to trust and responsibility, this remote work playbook reminds us that culture is what separates the companies that retain the best talent from the ones that don’t. Bonus points: There is real actionable advice here around creating trust and holding employees accountable—things even the best managers struggle with in this brave, remote-first world.
While this free resource does provide a great introduction for managers looking to embrace a remote-first culture, it doesn’t complete the loop in a lot of places. There are great high-level recommendations for attracting, hiring, onboarding and even establishing trust with new employees, but we would have liked to see a deeper dive.

This acronym is easy to remember. I think Trust and Responsibility is important for all employees - remote or in-person.
