  1. 1. Top 5 Things Organizations Need for Remote Cultures Building a strong digital culture can leverage remote work feel like an impossible endeavor. How do we create virtual workplaces with a shared sense of values? How do we sustain mentorship relationships and strengthen information sharing protocols? Without a good framework in place, it’s extremely unlikely that a team can build a hybrid culture, let alone a completely remote workplace. To leverage remote work, every organization must employ tried-and-true precepts. Here are the top 5 things organizations need to create robust remote cultures: Strong communication policies It almost feels trite to repeat, but communication is the foundation of any working relationship. In no uncertain terms, an open and direct communication policy is how great teams function at high levels consistently. The policies should always fit the work culture and environment while providing a clear set of protocols that leave little up to the imagination. To create truly free-flowing communication standards, some rules should be implemented that establish response times to messages and where to document conversations. These guidelines provide a firm and consistent basis of communication that will make organization simpler and optimization a breeze.
  2. 2. Open information sharing Much like establishing necessary communication protocols, creating information-sharing hubs via productivity channels and workspaces is crucial in keeping an updated and functional organization. These hubs could be as detailed as project workflows or they might be as simple as a Slack thread with consistent updates. However your organization implements it, companies depend on logical and clear information sharing across departments. Draconian and traditional workplaces frequently run into the problem of siloing their information in an “everyone for themselves” attitude. As we have seen on a global scale these attitudes simply do not produce much more than greed and paranoia while bringing the organization down from the inside. Without information sharing, teams will quickly splinter and the disunion could be a fatal blow to a company’s reputation. Iterative design processes The iterative design process is an important step in the evolution of the greater organization. Iterative design processes allow for an entire organization to work on a project in a ‘fluid’ way, from inception to deployment. What’s more, these systems can be applied to almost any department and can completely change the department’s efficiency. The strategies that can be employed from the kanban method to the agile method and everything in between. Regardless of the method used, iterative design processes will make your teams feel more independent and effective without having to revolutionize the workforce. Remote hiring experts Another logically efficient way to create better remote teams is to enlist the help of remote talent consultants that know how to run a remote space and find great remote talent. Typically, the struggle in anything is finding the people who will flourish in a remote environment. This can easily be remedied by experts who know what to look for in remote talent. Small things can differentiate those who flourish in remote settings and those who can’t wrap their heads around it. Enlisting the right help will make those decisions simple and easy without requiring a class on

Extensive documentation Remote teams rely on communication and documentation to achieve their goals. Ensuring this typically means creating a policy of extensive documentation and enabling team members to easily share the information across departments. Keeping everyone on the same page is key to running the best remote teams possible. Conclusion Whether you are hiring remote freelancers to help complete an existing project or spearheading digital transformation, you will need to understand the foundational concepts of the remote workplace in order to succeed. Strong communication policies and open information sharing are absolutely essential. Your team needs to set strong boundaries and set clear expectations with regular updates. Processes can always be improved, so it’s equally important that you employ agile strategies to continually analyze and optimize existing systems. Remote work experts can aid you in employing these strategies and can be leveraged to streamline complicated and cumbersome in-house initiatives. 4 Steps to Become a Remote Developer Working remotely is an achievable goal in this day and age. Now more than ever, people are leveraging remote work apps to get projects done. How can you use this change to your advantage? As the prevalence of virtual collaboration grows, so do opportunities for software developers to work remotely. Working remotely can provide you with a better work-life balance, less stress, and boosted productivity if you are willing to take the necessary steps. Here are the 4 steps you need to take to become a remote developer: 1. Master your development skills This may seem obvious, but, many developers make the mistake of being single discipline when in reality it has never been more necessary to be a multi-language developer. Full-stack development, backend scripting, and debugging are just a few things that every developer should be aware of
  4. 4. when applying for positions as almost everyone is looking for a myriad of skills when choosing their talent. Therefore, it becomes imperative to go back through what you know and redouble the efforts to expand your skills to become an even more attractive candidate. Using StackOverflow and GitHub, almost any developer should be able to test their skills and learn new things that can give them the advantage in the marketplace. Developers that are seen as skilled are typically multi-disciplinary craftsmen that can easily adapt to changing circumstances when the need arises 2. Research the freelance marketplace Of course, all of these skills will go to waste unless you can conquer the freelance markets. There are a number of options for developers who wish to get started on the hunt but the main advice will always be to get comfortable with each major platform. This is simply because remote developers don’t always know where the next project is coming from. Mastering the right platform is truly about giving yourself the best possible advantage in finding work that is right for you. Each developer will need their own environment and skillset to prioritize, however, every developer should master the platforms that are right for them for the best chance of finding the right project for them. 3. Update your online portfolio Most importantly, it is imperative that developers who wish to freelance spend as much time as they can on perfecting their online portfolio. Just as a modern artist or designer might, creating a succinct portfolio that will take managers on a journey of your skills is incredibly important in landing the right role. Many great traditional developers have work that is spread around different projects or clients. Instead, traditional developers should seek to create a tapestry of their work online that is easily accessible for potential employers who want to scout for their talent. Even most traditional employers now want a portfolio that shows a myriad of skills while retaining a professional aesthetic. Creating a great portfolio is an essential step each developer should take to become an attractive remote developer.
  5. 5. 4. Connect with other remote developers Another useful idea is to become acquainted with other developers out on the hunt for projects. While it may seem odd, creating connections with other remote developers is one of the best ways to hone your craft and get inside projects. Some of the best work you can get is based on recommendations, from relationships that you can build online. Reaching out and allying with your fellow remote developers is a great way to become a great remote developer yourself. Connecting with other developers is easier when using a tech talent platform, so you may want to consider joining one to further your professional development. Conclusion Working remotely was once a rare thing, allotted to only the most experienced developers. The pandemic showed that switching to remote work might not only be a more effective way to work, but also a safer and more practical way to collaborate, which prompted wider adoption. Deepening your skillset is always a good idea. Be sure to compliment this skill set with soft skills as well, spending a good deal of time on learning the rules of digital etiquette. In addition, you’ll need a greater understanding of the freelance marketplace, this will help you as you create your online resume or portfolio. Connecting with other remote freelancers and developers can help you adapt more quickly and learn the unspoken rules of virtual offices. Countless studies continue to show the benefits of remote work, from better worker satisfaction to lower rates of burnout, and businesses of all sizes are starting to realize the benefit of offering remote work arrangements. As such, you will be able to secure remote work full-time if you continue to strive towards it.

CLIENT EXPERIENCE “I’m super excited to be working with Hyqoo for global talent and very impressed with the level of talent that Hyqoo has been providing so far.” Picking the Best Cloud Platform: Google Cloud vs AWS
  9. 9. Cloud computing has fundamentally changed the digital landscape. We rely on cloud computing every single day as individuals and as enterprises. As more and more businesses become attuned to the information age, the more valuable information technology becomes. Cloud computing will continue to evolve as the needs of businesses, developers, and end-users change in kind. For that reason, it’s crucial to compare cloud technologies. Organizations should endeavor to understand which cloud platforms make the most sense in terms of scaling and pricing, and developers and engineers should determine which platform provides the highest-quality services and integrations. The expansion of cloud platforms As remote work grows rapidly, organizations must keep up with the growing field of technologies that follow in its wake. Fortunately, there are a host of web and cloud technologies that offer a wide array of assisted services to enterprises seeking to modernize. AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure each offer a unique way of handling cloud spaces and management. Each of them also constantly expands services to include tools that benefit software engineers, financial gurus, and medical professionals. The expansion of these services is a reminder that cloud- based productivity and processing is the way of the future as each industry gets a regained sense of optimization. Key offerings of cloud technologies The most important aspects of cloud technologies can be summed up using one word: scalability. Cloud technologies are godsends for businesses who wish to scale and save. They offer expandable storage, user management, AI technologies, and VMs just to name a few. In essence, cloud services energize your technological portfolio and expand the number of things your organization is capable of completing tenfold. From traditional organizations to fully distributed teams, cloud services will help your company to reach new heights and achieve new levels of technological progress. Advantages of Google Cloud
  10. 10. Google Cloud is an incredible platform for achieving highly technical goals within the smooth Google interface. Voice, AI, and automation technologies are available to organizations at an affordable cost that is easy to scale. Speaking of, Google Cloud Platform’s suite of automation and AI rank amongst some of the most advanced in the world and are capable of completely redefining your product. Google Cloud also comes with a unique amount of customization through VM, which can be an advantage for developers who want highly customized and fine-tuned compute instances. Through continued testing and expansion, Google has been able to create such incredible things as the Google Assistant and offers those same technologies to businesses who want to create a new world of products. Disadvantages of Google Cloud GCP is incredible and capable of achieving many different things. However, it is currently not as popular as its main rival and continues to fight for global scaling. While services can be limited based on location, it is still a powerful platform. While Google offers excellent machine learning services, it provides fewer services when compared to AWS overall. AWS offers over 200 services, offering more services than any other cloud platform by far. Advantages of Amazon Web Services (AWS) AWS is built for large enterprises. This simplifies scaling and smoothing as the platform can handle the most complex business tasks with a few selected options. Amazon’s technologies create new levels of depth for organizations that choose to trust Amazon. AWS offers many more services as well, making it ideal for developers who need to pull from many APIs. Also, it’s currently the only platform that offers its own Quantum Computing service on managed Jupyter notebooks. Disadvantages of AWS While AWS is undoubtedly popular, it also suffers from weaker AI tools and a lack of customizability compared to other platforms.
  11. 11. AWS has a commendable reach, but its lack of flexibility and complex cost structure are a few things to keep in mind when comparing. Even so, AWS is a powerful platform that can elevate organizations of all sizes to the next level. Conclusion Both Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services are incredibly strong cloud platforms. Both provide global scaling of cloud computing services at competitive prices. Amazon was the first to market and therefore has the largest base of users and developers and the highest number of services. However, bigger does not always mean better. The Google Cloud Platform can be easier to integrate with Google applications and provides industry-leading artificial intelligence services. AWS can be easier to set up for larger organizations but may lack some of the fine-tuning capabilities of GCP. Both require cloud platform engineers and cloud developers to leverage effectively. Ultimately, there’s no wrong choice. Whether you are seeking certification as a cloud developer or looking for a scalable cloud solution for your growing business, both platforms offer tremendous value. Hyqoo Builds a Global Remote Team for a Multinational Software Company PROBLEM One of the largest technology companies in the United States was sent spiraling when they were unable to form an efficient and effective delivery model for technology experts.

  14. 14. 7 Principles of Remote Work Leadership We are decidedly in a new era of collaboration. Enterprises of all sizes are rapidly responding to the remote work revolution. This transition has not always been easy, and, unfortunately, has proven to be nearly impossible for some. Some subtle differences among traditional, hybrid, and remote work cultures may make themselves readily apparent, even to the most seasoned executives. Mapping and monitoring your virtual work environments requires an open mind. These guiding principles of remote work leadership will aid you tremendously. Here are the 7 principles of remote work leadership: 1. Monitor results, not activities One of the more jarring developments for traditional work environments is the transition from micromanagement to progress management. Draconian management styles have proven to be fairly ineffective in remote environments and often inhibit valuable production time. Instead, remote leaders should focus on results and progress made as a team. 2. Be as flexible as possible Making progress in a remote environment does require flexible leaders who can work in different time zones and across cultural boundaries. Additionally, remote work has shown workers when and how they work at optimal capacity. This brings on the additional challenge of leaders being able to work with different personalities and unique work schedules. Indeed, flexibility is the hallmark of a bonafide remote leader. 3. Encourage asynchronous communication In traditional environments, most leaders are used to an immediate call and response from their team members. In a remote environment, this is a much harder task to complete and leads to an asynchronous communication style by default.
  15. 15. However, mastering this sort of communication can give your team an undeniable advantage in a remote environment as it provides maximum flexibility and information sharing. 4. Make team meetings valuable Great remote work leaders also know how to get the most out of their meetings by using the vast array of tools now available to streamline information and maximize the time opportunity. Google Workspace, Zoom, Trello, and Asana are just a few of the many tools and platforms that remote leaders use to optimize their meetings in a way that would be too difficult in a traditional work environment. 5. Find opportunities to empathize Remote leaders are all too aware that remote workers are surrounded by both real world and personal responsibility at home. As such, the best leaders know when to empathize with their team members in a way that benefits everyone involved. Due to the nature of remote work, there is natural leniency that is created by working around family and life. Great leaders know when it’s time to take time. 6. Craft clear project roadmaps Remote leaders are all too keenly aware of the value of a clear and concise roadmap that details roles, budgets, and expectations. In remote settings, these roadmaps act as the rulebook and guide through which team members from all over the globe can coalesce and share ideas. Leaders must always be willing to revise and restate their roadmap so that the plan stays steady and the team remains focused. 7. Improve by iterating Experienced remote leaders know the value of iterating each step of their process to rarefy and refine the team and its products. Improvement through iteration is the hallmark of almost all advanced tech companies because it works. Iterating with team members is something that all remote leaders should rely upon to get the most out of their teams.
  16. 16. Conclusion The most productive organizations in the future will be those willing to evaluate their current processes to create more efficient and effective virtual work environments. That means embracing completely different communication and collaboration styles for most enterprises. A remote work environment flourishes when it is results-driven, flexible, asynchronous, and agile. Leaders must spend more time creating foundational protocols that avoid micromanaging and over- scheduling while maintaining an open stream of communication. Redundancies must be reduced in order for productivity to remain high. Many managers are wont to keep in constant video communication with every worker. This should be reserved for activities that require either nuance or emotional sensitivity to maximize productivity and minimize workers’ performance anxiety. 4 Ways Organizations Are Handling Remote Work Balance Remote work presents opportunities and challenges in equal measure. Several studies have found that leveraging remote work results in booms to both productivity and cost reduction. Yet organizations find it difficult to properly hire, attract, and retain remote talent. The talent gap is widening and companies are struggling to compete. How are organizations modifying their current hiring and team management systems to accommodate these rapid changes? Balance is key when implementing new systems. As such, creating a baseline for remote work is of the utmost importance. 1. Increasing transparency Creating a balanced remote team relies on transparency. Many issues that arise for remote teams are the same that keep in-house teams down as well. Typically it is clarity that is needed to resolve issues from top to bottom. Clarity regarding operational protocols, deadlines, and expectations. Many traditional companies still rely on social pressure and insinuation in order to get their goals across. However, social pressure is far less effective online.
  17. 17. Instead, the somewhat uncomfortable process of open information sharing is the only way to procure a remote team that feels engaged and supported. Oftentimes, it will be teams cross delegating work that will cause misfires and errors. Guaranteeing that your company uses an open messaging system and a workflow space that is accessible to your teams is an incredibly crucial step in balancing remote work. A team that is transparent will see the goal clearly on the other side. 2. Integrating agile management principles The agile method and its principles have been in use for over twenty years. They provide a groundwork for project management philosophy that has been proven to work wonderfully in organizations of all kinds. Things like open communication, group work, and positive reinforcement are included in the philosophy and underscore the larger core point of the blueprint. Iterative design is the basis of the methodology and just as it serves to create better products it also serves as a remedy for developers everywhere. It forces teams to interact and managers to manage. It lays out expectations and guidelines to produce a more efficient team that is informed and unstressed. Integrating agile methodology is a sure-fire way to create a more dynamic team that feels seen and heard. Balancing remote work through agile is an important step to creating an environment where both the developers and the managers flourish. 3. Leveraging remote work hiring platforms Fortunately, finding remote work and balancing remote work can be accomplished through the same channels. Sometimes a task must be split or a consultant needs to be brought in to bring things up to speed. Either way, remote platforms are there to help your organization find a way through the storm that is operational dynamics. Some platforms connect you directly to remote work consultants while others have integrated workspaces that make tracking work a breeze. Leveraging remote work platforms to your advantage might be all you need to correct course and keep the high wire act above ground. 4. Creating clear boundaries Another important step to creating balance is to establish clear boundaries that workers can operate within comfortably. Without guidance, developers will begin to feel aimless and like there isn’t a definitive end to their projects. This will harshly lower morale and motivation to the point of
  18. 18. organizational catastrophe. Effectively countering this means that organizational leaders must set clear goals for each team and then advance those goals once accomplished. Establishing true leadership through protocols and expectations will help the entire organization run like a well- polished schooner. Conclusion Remote work balance is hard to achieve, even for the most seasoned remote executives. It is crucial to increase transparency to sustain strong communication policies. Using agile management principles is also key as there will need to be a little trial and error before your organization solidifies its policies. Leveraging remote work hiring platforms is the easiest way to achieve remote work balance as these experts can bring a sorely-needed perspective to your team. They can greatly simplify and optimize your projects. It is critically important to set clear boundaries and improve information sharing throughout the entire company. After all, there is no remote work balance without clear and concise communication. 4 Reasons Enterprises Are Embracing Remote Work Remote work is surging in popularity. While the pandemic has made remote work more mainstream, remote work has steadily been on the rise in the US and abroad over the past decade. In fact, the number of remote workers has quadrupled in just a few short years and, according to the Harvard Business Review, over 81% of American workers showed a preference for the remote work model. As the labor market stiffens and the talent shortage is prolonged, organizations of all sizes need to find new and innovative ways to compete. Now more than ever, strategic-minded organizations are adopting remote work to address this growing talent gap. Here are the top 4 reasons enterprises are embracing remote work: 1. Talent shortages have created immense competition In reality, many expert professionals are tired of draconian work environments where the disrespect is palatable and the stress is unbearable. After the last economic “brain drain”, finding and retaining talent became even harder than it was before. This fact, coupled with a pandemic that exacerbated
  19. 19. the already strained traditional working environment, has led to an exodus to the land of tubes and digits. However, this also increased the potential employer pool to include companies from all over the world, meaning that professionals now have a plethora of choices to make. To compete with the best, more and more companies are now turning to remote work as a way of attracting talent that desires to be respected while also utilizing their skills in a professional environment. By offering remote, businesses around the world are finding the quality of their candidates increasing and the cost of operating decreasing. There is, in fact, a beautiful harmony of saving and respecting that goes into remote work that helps to create an attractive proposal for great talent. 2. Complex projects often require freelancers Another reason companies accept remote work is simply the amount of work to be completed. Whether through complexity or scope, sometimes a project can exceed its personnel. Remote freelancers can help identify and alleviate blockages preventing a project from completion. Remote systems are rare in that they usually benefit from an outside perspective to create a better functioning team. 3. Failure rates are radically reduced by the benefits of remote work Of course, what good is the implementation of a new working system if there aren’t some glaring benefits. Aside from the boons to the workers themselves, remote work has proven time and again to be just as effective, if not more than a traditional work environment. Projects tend to fail less often in a remote workspace because of a few main reasons. Firstly, they tend to have more eyes in the workspace so it is easier for managers to keep an eye on progress being made and for workers to keep track of what they need to do to complete the project. Secondly, remote work tends to be a cumulative process so finding errors and fixing them becomes a much more straightforward procedure. Of course, this is provided that the organizations are streamlining remote work environments effectively. Finally, projects in remote spaces tend to be focused on by the entire team at once and function as good indicators of who did the work. This provides a certain level of motivation to workers who know that their work will be attributed to them. Being able to identify the pieces of a project and seeing them from the outside means that remote management has a host of benefits that are simply missing from traditional environments. 4. Higher worker satisfaction
  20. 20. Ultimately, these principles and remote workspaces lead directly to more satisfied employees that will feel respected and entrusted with their projects by management. This level of autonomy creates an environment where workers want to work instead of constantly looking at the door. Retaining talent through remote work practices may be the best way to ensure your company always has the best and brightest. Conclusion As wages stagnated, organizations have looked for more lucrative ways to attract talent. A remote model can address the obvious labor gaps in the market. It can help companies adapt to complex projects. Software projects, in particular, need this flexibility. Other benefits include higher worker satisfaction, which leads to better worker-owner relationships. Higher retention rates, greater productivity, and drastically lowered costs also prove tremendous incentives for businesses ready to adopt the remote model. Streamlining the remote work model will only prove advantageous for all organizations.
