You can see the infographic mentions also the social aspects which get neglected for remote team members. So how can we overcome them? A great idea would be a virtual team meeting where also personal live areas get exchanged and not only business-related issues.
Luckily we have today technology which entitles us to bring our remote team members virtual to the table and understand them crystal clear.
