Issue #111  (How I Bought a Business for $0) 03/29/21

Here's a Tweet thread from the team at Sifted where they outline the best way to manage your team and nurture your company culture in the era of remote work.

Sifted Tweets

The tips are taken from some of their recent conference talks. Topics in the short thread include:
  • How do you keep company culture healthy?
  • How do you make sure people don’t get overworked?
  • How do you bring on new people remotely?
  • How do you deal with conflict resolution?
Their website seems to have summaries of previous talks, but I'm not sure if there's audio or video anywhere, should you want to see the full discussions.
Now on to this week's hand-picked productivity links!
