Harvard Business Review estimates that by 2020, over 50% of the worldwide workforce will be virtual. Contrary to some well-publicized decisions to dis-allow working from home or remotely, the huge trend is to allow for, accommodate, and encourage working remotely.
Participants in this webinar will be able to:
- Teach their Management Teams the very real and quantifiable benefits of allowing people to work remotely, thereby increasing Employee Engagement, especially for the Millennial (Gen Y) population of workers
- Learn and apply the four key attributes to look for when hiring the right people for remote positions, thereby avoiding costly turnover and low productivity.
- Discover the Top 10 Employee Engagement Drivers and how to maximize them for Virtual Workers
- Establish the right “remote architecture” or structure to ensure a successful virtual work world, especially how to leverage technology to bridge the gap or gulf between “Corporate” and “the field”
- Help their organization and leaders overcome the barrier of TRUST, which can be one of the greatest impediments to a successful virtual work environment/culture
We will cover the following key elements to building this trust:
- Cultivating a remote culture of freedom and autonomy
- Fostering great communication
- Establishing and maintain clear and complementary roles and responsibilities
