COURSE OVERVIEW

Today's organizations are not only becoming more global, but their employees are increasingly working remotely instead of in a traditional office environment. The benefits of remote work are immense, like lower turnover and greater employee satisfaction. But managing a remote workforce requires more than just smartphones, Wi-Fi, and web cams. It requires having the right employees in the right jobs paired with new skills and appropriate resources. It also requires managers who know how to communicate effectively, maintain a sense of community, cultivate teamwork, and develop relationships built on trust.

By improving your ability to manage off site employees, you will empower yourself in many ways. You will increase your ability to recruit, hire, and retain the right employees for a job. You will help ensure that your team is cohesive and productive. You will know how to avoid costly, time-consuming problems and help your team meet its goals.  Skillful managers of remote employees can build camaraderie, create a more positive work environment, and encourage stronger business performance regardless of distance.

This virtual instructor-led training event focuses on managing offsite employees and will show remote workforce managers how to achieve success for their employees and themselves. This three hour-program offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
