We’re all still figuring out how to manage in a remote work environment as more organizations have fully embraced that they’re not going back to the office.
What’s working for SEO teams that are connecting in slack channels, email, and Zoom meetings? Can asynchronous communication thrive across a distributed SEO team?
We talked to Ruth Burr Reedy about what she’s experienced and how she’s found strategies and managing techniques that are helping her teams thrive. In this episode, we’ll also cover:
- Making recommendations your clients will actually implement
- Building and managing a remote team
- Defending work/life balance when you work from home (especially as a parent)
- How the pandemic has changed agency/client relationships
