Description

With the nation-wide move to have employees work from home to limit social distancing in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, many managers are faced with virtually managing their employees for the first time. Already 50 percent of today’s employees work virtually as of 2020 and many more would like to. Thirty-six percent of employees would give up a pay raise for the ability to work remotely; 40 percent would be willing to take a pay cut for that option. Find out what it takes to successfully manage virtual workers, learn the pitfalls and successful tools and techniques other organizations are successfully using on this topic, and increase your confidence for effectively getting work done through workers who are not in the office.

Topics include:

  • The growing importance of virtual work and the virtual worker
  • Setting clear goals, expectations and control for virtual workers
  • Building trust, teams and accountability with virtual workers
  • Technology tools and strategies for extraordinary communication
  • Promoting inclusion and collaboration with virtual workers
  • Virtual recognition and rewards for remote workers

By allowing greater worker autonomy and flexibility, companies can greatly expand their potential pool of talent, which is especially important in light of the increasing shortage of skilled labor facing all organizations today and in the years to come.

Learning objectives:

  • Hear recent research, trends and practices shaping the virtual workforce
  • Learn work challenges & opportunities in the use of remote workers
  • Obtain successful strategies & techniques in managing virtual employees

Each attendee will receive their choice of one of these books:

  • The Virtual Manager
  • Keeping Up in a Down Economy: What the Best Companies Do to Get Results in Tough Times
  • 1,001 Ways to Engage Employees

Program is certified for 1 SHRM and HRCI credits.

This webinar has been approved for Business/Strategic CEU Credit by HRCI as well as
SHRM PDC.
