If you work remotely in any capacity, this guide is a no-brainer and will pay for itself in a week. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel—it provides a playbook for making remote work, work.

The biggest mistake a manager of remote teams can make is doing too much of the wrong thing, and not enough of the right thing. The wrong thing is micromanaging because you can’t see your team. The right thing is documenting everything so that you don’t have to see them. This guide not only explains why one is better than the other, but exactly how to do it successfully. Gold.

This is the best guide I’ve seen on what shifting to remote work really means. The comprehensive collection of insights, best practices, and expert knowledge is not only deep, but easy to navigate in the Holloway format. I hope this guide inspires companies to explore remote work from a deeper perspective, and use it as a way to unleash human potential in the organizations of the future.

Such a complete guide to remote work was long overdue. More often than not, remote work has been studied and written about through a very tech-centric lens. Holloway’s guide provides an in-depth look at how everyone can adopt this new work style.

Characteristically comprehensive, manageable, and enjoyable, this new remote work book feels both timely and futuristic. Unless you play in the NBA or are raising a barn, you’ve been working more or less remotely for decades—at your desk, in an office, connected to others through a variety of devices. Not being physically present with your coworkers is a natural continuation of this trend. This book is Holloway’s most ambitiously self-fulfilling to date: we will soon look back at it and wonder how this wasn’t always perfectly obvious to our old selves!

Data-driven yet human-centered, this is a comprehensive, thoughtful, and brutally honest guide to remote work. Hiring, onboarding, meetings, mental health—the Holloway Guide to Remote Work has it all.

This guide is a comprehensive resource of start-to-finish advice from the world’s top remote work experts. It’s a game changer for the future of virtual jobs.
founder, Product Hunt
People often ask me what tools we use to manage our distributed team at Product Hunt. Unfortunately you can’t simply install a few apps to run a remote team efficiently. Remote working is an intentional approach to communication that is fundamentally different from traditional office work. It requires trust and effective asynchronous communication. The Holloway Guide to Remote Work is a useful resource (alongside those tools!) to become a strong remote teammate or leader. I’m glad to see more knowledge being shared on this topic.
founder and author, Divinations
Distributed work is hard, but the benefits are incredible when you get it right. I can’t recommend this insanely comprehensive guide highly enough.
CEO, Remote Year
If you really want a deep dive on the ins and outs and how-tos and oh-no!s of remote, this is by far the best thing out there. You can go from learning to help prevent burnout in your teams to the legal and tax implications of hiring global workers, all in one place. It’s truly remarkable.

Many organizations and teams are suddenly finding themselves forced to implement emergency remote work policies, but that doesn’t mean those big changes need to be handled sloppily. The Holloway Guide to Remote Work is a super well-structured, one-stop shop for everything you need to think about when attempting to transform a culture to support healthy remote work. Plus it’s a pleasure to read!

When it comes to remote work, most of what you find online is anecdotal or individual points of view. Holloway assembled an incredible team with a lot of experience to consolidate ideas and create a shared understanding of the challenges and the methods of working remotely. Starting with a first-principles approach around work, culture, and communication, the guide evolves to practical guidance and curated benchmarks for individuals, teams, and companies.
Head of Remote, AngelList
The current pandemic has turned a lot of people on to remote work by necessity, and there’s a ton of stuff coming out every day to try and address the current upswing in information requests. A lot of it is just corporate marketing. This is not that. Holloway’s been working on this guide for months—it’s comprehensive, has a ton of contribution from people with all kinds of experience in remote management, and the format makes it easy to navigate to the problem you’re having right now.
