With many companies on the fence about continuing their working from home policies, it can be easy to forget about all the benefits of remote work beyond being a pandemic-era safety measure.
On this episode of CMO Convo, we're joined by Amanda Reierson, Head of Marketing at Thumbtack, who is passionate about the benefits of remote work, but also recognizes the challenges. Chief among them: caring for the emotional wellbeing of your team as a leader when you can't see them all the time.
Key talking points
- The advantages and challenges of remote marketing teams.
- How to show compassion and emotional support as a leader in a remote setting.
- Why the mental wellbeing of workers should be a top priority for marketing leaders.
