40 UNDER 40 PERSPECTIVES
this to be a space for normal office
conversation that no longer happens
when you work remotely; a place to
share pictures of vacations, kids, pets
or funny stories.
We try to strike a good balance and
not get carried away with off-topic
chatter, but allowing and encouraging
those organic conversations really
helps to bond the group together
and can take away some of the
workplace loneliness that remote
workers can feel.
Get creative with education
opportunities. The more our inside
sales reps understand the " big
picture " of the company and how
their parts of the process fit in, the
more effective they will be doing
their job.
Getting the reps out to the
nearest farm to tour and see the
product or different processes is
so valuable when possible. Every
new inside sales rep spends time
grading our bareroot product
in the winter to get hands-on
experience with our product.
If in-person tours are not
possible, we can set up a virtual
tour. If someone expresses an
interest in learning more about
a particular topic, our manager
is happy to connect us with
someone in the company. This
is not only educational but also
provides an opportunity for the
team to connect with others at
the company.
Make time for in-person
interactions and make the most
of that time. Even though our
ability to connect virtually has
increased immensely over the
last few years, I can't stress
enough the importance of
getting the team together in
person as opportunity allows.
Having a face-to-face connection
greatly improves relationships
when it is back to remote
work. It tends to strengthen and
improve understanding, trust and
communication.
For us, this happens by traveling
to trade shows, traveling with
territory reps to meet customers
and participating in national sales
meetings. From joining the inside
sales team almost eight years ago to
now being someone who helps train
and shape that same team, I feel so
fortunate to have current and former
managers who have done an excellent
job of building a strong team culture.
I've had excellent examples to follow,
and I'm excited to keep helping shape
the team in the future!
