Working from home can give those who don't typically enjoy speaking up in the workplace an opportunity to do so. Ben Walker, CEO and founder of Transcription Outsourcing, LLC, says most of his employees who were outgoing and want to get ahead in the workplace are active on Slack, email, and texting while working remotely.
However, he noticed that some of his quieter employees have stepped up, too.
"There are a few that have stepped up a little more via email that weren't as active or talkative in the office before, which has been good to see," says Walker. "Sometimes I think they were intimidated by the more active and louder employees when we were in person."
So if you aren't the most outgoing, but are a hard worker, show your bosses that you're engaged by being active, remotely, wherever you can.
