|Any company needs processes, they are clearly more necessary for a remote-first company.|
It's important to be pragmatic and don't over-design processes. I believe some companies take advantage of being remote to micro-manage or add extra layers of control over their employee's work-life.
Besides that, there's no point on generating extra information that no one will ever review or use to take action.
For me, key processes should focus on:
- Team communication
- Simple day to day reporting
- Self-management tools and goal-oriented thinking
I've learned a lot from Zapier's guide but I think some stuff might be an overkill https://zapier.com/learn/remote-work/
Here is a draft we are working on at my company
