Are you Remote Ready?

Distributed and remote work is here to stay.

A recent McKinsey survey of 800 corporate executives from around the globe states that 38% expect their remote employees to continue working from home at least some of the time.

This should come to no surprise.

When the call came to keep businesses operational during the pandemic, remote work answered. Productivity, sustainability and work-life balance also increased during this transition.

If we are to continue to embrace the benefits of remote work. Organizations adapting to more permanent remote work arrangements need to address more than shifting operational structures. They need to take care of their employees and ensure they are ready for a new age of remote work.

At Oyster, a fully-distributed company, we understand this better than anyone. This is why we have come up with Remote Ready!

Remote Ready is a specialized training course dedicated to remote work best practices.

The aim of the program is to equip motivated and talented individuals with the knowledge and tools to best perform in a remote or distributed company.

Remote Ready is here to help teams become successful at distributed working.

The reality is that many remote teams still work like in-house teams. This creates a snowball effect, where working in this way results in:

  • Bad communication and collaboration, especially across time zones
  • Difficulty communicating through a screen
  • A feeling of isolation, often with limited ownership or autonomy
  • Lack of company culture and team bonding

Our in-house remote working experts and educators teamed up. They created a future-proof learning journey, that addresses the above.

The Remote Ready program simulates working at a distributed company.

We use the remote tools and practices you’ll learn about to run the course. For full immersion, the course is 95% asynchronous. During the course, you’ll work through lessons and tutorials. This will be done together, using distributed tools like Slack and Loom.

The course is 4 weeks long, but your work will be at your own pace. Anyone can complete Remote Ready, regardless of their time commitments or familiarity with the tools.

At the end of the course, you are awarded an official Remote Ready certificate. Access to Oyster’s exclusive community. There you will find partners, customers, and potential future employers.

Upon completion of Remote Ready, we will help you find and apply for remote jobs at the best-distributed companies. There you will be able to show prospective employers that you’re Remote Ready.

Remote Ready is part of Oyster’s wider goal of closing the geographic gap between great job opportunities and talented individuals.

We believe in a world where it doesn’t matter where you’re from. Remote Ready allows us to get closer to that goal.

Remote Ready applications are now open.
