Managing employees is a tough job. When those employees are remote, it seems harder!
Prior to COVID-19, about forty percent of employees worked out of the office at least some time during the year; and they reported that they were happier and felt more valued than non-remote workers. Estimates of savings to employers for allowing staff to work remotely range between $11,000 and $22,000 per worker per year. However, lack of proximity creates unique communication challenges.
Dispersed employees cannot easily pop into another’s workspace, meet for coffee, lunch together, or walk down the hall for face-to-face meetings. This three-hour webinar identifies seven practical suggestions for managing remote workers.
