For over a decade, Toptal has thrived as a fully distributed global company, with over 4,000 individuals working in a fully remote environment, in over 100 countries. They have no office, and now they're sharing insights in their Remote Playbook at https://www.toptal.com/remote-work-playbook#trust-nothing-but-your-top-programmers
It is quite insightful and talks about:
- common problems
The "Common problems" is especially good as it shows what issues a company that's switching to remote will encounter, and how to address them.
Spend half an hour and read through it to gain all the insights.
