This is a Live 2-day virtual training not a recorded session.
Both days 8:00am - 10:00am
The workforce is changing rapidly. An increasing number of employees work offsite, by choice (theirs or their employer’s) or by necessity. A few years ago, 34 million Americans worked remotely, at least occasionally, and that number is expected to jump to 63 million by the middle of this decade. Some of your employees may work at home, in close proximity to the onsite team. Others may be scattered around the country or the globe. Given the increasingly global nature of today’s organizations—as well as improvements in technology that facilitate virtual collaboration and a workforce that insists on more flexibility and independence—this trend is likely to keep gaining momentum.
In this seminar, we will:
Discuss the benefits and challenges of offsite working relationships for employees, managers, and organizations
Explain the importance of successfully managing offsite employees
Identify the factors and tools that must be in place for an offsite employee to be effective
Describe the role that trust and communication play in the success of an offsite relationship
Employ strategies that help offsite employees stay on track and that deal with common problems faced by managers
Follow a set of best practices for successfully managing offsite employees
