Germain, Marie-Line
Performance Improvement Quarterly, v24 n3 p29-54 2011

Selecting, training, and socializing employees in virtual teamwork has therefore become an important human resource function. This article provides an overview of the research on trust in virtual teams, its importance, and how to overcome some challenges of trust development in virtual teams. Recommendations for virtual team developers and human resources professionals are presented. (Contains 3 tables.)
