Prior to mid-March 2020, approximately eight million people worked from home in the US. With stay-at-home orders around the world, hundreds of millions have suddenly been added to the previously small pool of workers who are commonly considered remote employees. In the face of that dramatic shift, companies are left scrambling to re-imagine work, asking employees accustomed to working from an office to instantly evolve into a remote workforce.
This overnight evolution presents significant challenges, both for organizations, and for employees - and the responsibility to facilitate this rapid change effort falls swiftly onto learning & development departments. How can you structure and rapidly deliver training to facilitate upskilling around working at home for your employees? Can you even afford to design and develop the training, or support the technology demands?
Join Dr. Allen Partridge, Head of Digital Learning Evangelism for this introduction to the skills, realities and best practices for working from home. Learn how you might expedite the process, facilitate the technology demands, and leverage your broader workforce to minimize the costs.
Attendees will learn:     
  • What are the core skills required for working from home?
  • Should you re-examine remote work policies?
  • How can you anticipate the needs of this new group working from home?
