The Toggl Track Guide to Establishing a Successful Remote Culture

Andrei Tiburca Andrei Tiburca Last Updated:

Our friends from Toggl Track have released an awesome guide to establishing a successful remote culture.

This well-written guide answers some questions like how to build a remote team, how to lead a remote team or why build one in the first place. 10 awesome companies like Invision, GitLab, Zapier and yours truly, Toggl Plan, share their experience on how they established a remote culture. 

Here are a few snippets from the guide.

I think culture is combined by every team member’s unique values. The leader sets the core values but the whole culture is never established by just one person. I think it’s organic and changes a bit every time a new team member comes on board. – Annika Helendi, Toggl Plan

Just like a co-located company, a culture forms whether someone is paying attention to it or not. I think that for remote teams the risk is much higher to have a disconnected, disengaged team if someone is not constantly paying attention to it. – Becca Van Nederynen, Help Scout

You need to actively work on defining the culture. It is a constant effort, and should not be left self-organizing. It’s so important to keep people communicating, making sure they talk about their plans, achievements and also problems. It’s also very important to work on building trust and safe environment for taking risks. – Alari Aho, Toggl Track
