It’s the Thursday “ask the readers” query. A reader writes:
I not too long ago beginning working remotely at a medium-large dimension firm after working at a smaller firm for a number of years. I’m glad for the change and all the things goes effectively, however I’m discovering it tougher than I assumed it might to get to know individuals and set up stable working relationships on this bigger group. At my final firm, not solely was my group fairly small, however I began within the workplace earlier than transitioning to WFH, so this facet of working was quite a bit simpler and simply occurred naturally.
I’d love some recommendation about good methods to get to know individuals and make a very good impression when beginning at a distant firm with massive departments. To be clear, I’m not trying to be greatest mates with anybody right here, however I feel having a very good rapport with my coworkers helps with the work I do, particularly when reaching out to departments outdoors of my very own, and I in fact need the management groups to know me and suppose effectively of me. I usually need my work to talk for itself, however that appeared simpler to do at my earlier firm the place I usually spoke and offered to firm management.
Readers, take it away within the feedback.
