Improving the Health of Your Hybrid Remote Culture with Oliver Weiss

Oliver Weiss
Today we present the very real story of someone who tapped into remote work to build scalability into a business in the healthcare industry - one that’s not usually associated with remote. There are many challenges inherent to managing an hybrid remote team - one where part of the company operates from an office, and part from their homes or co-working spaces - and with a near 50/50 split, MeCasa sets a sterling example of how to do it.

Welcome to the DistantJob Podcast, a show where we interview the most successful remote leaders, picking their brains on how to build and lead remote teams who win.

After devoting a significant portion of his life understanding the financial industry Oliver Weiss pivoted his career into healthcare, which he found to be his calling, by becoming the founder and CEO of MeCasa. MeCasa (https://www.mecasa.de – English version coming soon) aims to provide excellent home care by connecting the best professional caregivers with the people who need them the most, and their families.

In this episode, we talk about how Oliver takes an active role in conceiving and creating a healthy company culture. A lot of people mention the importance of culture, but few get into the practical specifics and examples like Oliver does! We talk about communication ( Why complicate? Telegram is enough!), we talk about how remote work provides the opportunity for scaling, we talk about planning and leading bookclub-like workshops with the team.
