Managing Remote Teams
Workplaces are increasingly moving to, and recognizing the benefits of, remote working arrangements. Remote arrangements can include full-time telecommuting, flexible work schedules, compressed workweeks, working from home or elsewhere, and many more alternatives. Although remote work arrangements come with many benefits, including improved employee productivity and greater job satisfaction, as a leader, it’s important to understand what the barriers are and how to overcome them to build a successful and productive virtual team.
During this one-hour wellness session leaders will: • Understand and recognize the challenges and strengths that a remote workforce brings • Learn about what drives success in virtual teams • Discover strategies that can increase remote employee engagement and productivity
