On this episode of the Employee Cycle podcast, we have Liam Martin, Founder of Running Remote, joining us to discuss asynchronous work and its relationship to managing a remote workforce. This podcast will challenge the way HR professionals think about meetings, reporting structures, transparency in sharing information, and so much more for a remote workforce! It’s one of our more provocative episodes!

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • First off, how did Liam Martin’s work bring him into the HR world?
  • Secondly, what is Asynchronous Work, and provide an example of how it works.
  • Next, here’s thinking outside the box – how can you make sure your remote team can work without being dependent on other people?
  • How can you give all employees access to everything they need to solve difficult problems? (Crazy idea: asking others for help is disruptive and slows down productivity)
  • What is the cost of collaboration via meetings vs. processes and systems? (Tip: More collaboration does not equal more meetings)
  • Hang on…this will be controversial: Having managers is a waste of time and resources. 
  • Culture isn’t about the people in an organization – It’s about the work they do. Culture is about the mission and the problem you’re trying to solve. If people are passionate about the mission, they will love working for the organization.
