Remote Teams: Managing Performance, Engagement & Morale

Duration: 60 minutes

Ask employees about working remote and most will tell you they love it. Better work/life balance, less commute time and more freedom. Ask the same of managers and you’ll likely hear a different story. I don’t know if my people are really working. It’s harder to communicate. Team meetings are a challenge. I don’t have as many opportunities for coaching.

The good news is, remote teams can be highly productive and engaged once managers understand the key principles and available technology for leading off-site employees. This webinar will provide a proven roadmap for success. (more details below)

WHY ATTEND

Studies show that nearly 50% of employees telecommute at least part time -- and that number is on the rise. While this may be great for employees -- and potentially a benefit to the organization -- it’s a new paradigm that requires managers to adopt a different mindset. The traditional “be here at 9:00 on Monday and we’ll get to work” model often doesn’t apply to telecommuters. To achieve goals as efficiently as possible managers must learn to shift their focus from “when and where” to “what and how”.

Technology to the rescue … maybe. It seems like every week there’s a new tool designed to help your team collaborate, share information and be more productive. Yet 80% of people use only 20% of the team tech they already have. So how do you decide what tech you really need -- and ensure that your people make the most of it?

This 60-minute session will show you how best-in-class organizations get it done. You’ll learn practical ideas for setting clear expectations, developing performance metrics, keeping engagement high, ensuring that every employee -- onsite or remote -- feels like part of the team, and deploying the right technology to help you get it all done.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

In this interactive and engaging hour, you’ll learn how to:

  • Understand and deal with the unique challenges of managing a remote workforce
  • Set expectations that people buy into
  • Establish “line-of-sight” metrics that can be tracked regardless of location
  • Develop communication strategies so both you and your employees get what they need
  • Audit your technology needs and answer key questions such as:
    • What do we do with those who don’t utilize the technology we provide
    • How do I improve communication with the tools I already have
    • What are the “must have” technologies for an effective system
    • What else is out there that we need to know about
