I’ve done it at a few companies across many states/countries. Recommend: 1. Weekly video 1x1’s. Don’t just talk work (what have u done/up next) but also how they’re doing and how you can help them be successful. 2. Weekly Team meetings. I used to call these “Staff” but changed it to “Team” since you want to demonstrate you’re in it together - shared wins and losses. 3. Team Building - quarterly at an offsite, ideally coupled with quarterly planning objectives (eg Release Planning if it’s a Product Team). 4. Reinforced Communication - video always on unless bandwidth is an issue. Always share screen on slides / pages, and take notes. By sharing screening on notes at a minimum at the end of a group meeting, you reinforce oral conversation with visual written action items and owners. 5. Overcommunicate - Slack and email reinforce meeting discussions and key takeaways / actions / owners. I have several other tips, but this post is too long already :)

Have a fixed output expected for every half or full day status.  Have a call with them and see how they are doing and the challenges they are facing.

Otis more convenient for IT professionals to work from home, managers only to prioritize schedules, as well discuss with team through conference call.
