At the end of the day, the result or the growth you expect from them is half of what is required. All these because of misunderstanding and a major communication gap. Here are some tips that will help you manage your remote workforce resulting in a better work report.
Pay attention to their problems
Whenever your employees/workers come to you with a problem pay heed to them. Whatever the problem might be attentive to them listen to the whole problem from the beginning and act wisely. Even if the problem is their personal you should be attentive always. Ask them to explain the whole problematic situation so that you can understand it better and come up with a solution. As they are the ones working in the remote site you can also consult with them to get a better solution.
Small tasks over long-term Goals
Keep them busy with small tasks, tasks that will take a few days to end. That way they will always be engaged and you can do a check on them very often. Whereas, with long-term goals that take several months even years to end will make them demotivated easily, they will get bored and lose interest in the work given. Also, you wouldn't be able to check on them for a long period. Appreciate them with all small milestones they achieve rather than giving them a pile of work.
Communication is the key
Good communication is the key to everything, managing a remote workforce is no different. Always keep some options open to communicate with them. It can be via chats, calls, video calls, and emails. Always keep several options open for emergency purposes. So that anytime the remote workforce needs you you'll be able to reach them via any of the above-mentioned ways. Another thing you can consider is to hire a relationship manager who'll manage the communication and relation between them and you.
Always keep a plan B handy

Always schedule out a separate plan of what to do if something goes wrong and some rapid actions are needed. Make sure the alternate plan is easy for them to perform. Always keep them aware of the materials and resources needed to revive or perform plan B.
