Remote Worker Management
Time & Location
About The Event
For a number of years, the world of business has been tentatively moving towards allowing remote working. In fact, in 2019, around 70% of global professionals worked remotely at least one day per week, and 53% worked remotely at least half the week. The Corona Virus (COVID-19) has sped up the uptake of remote working across the globe with many countries declaring “lockdowns” which prevents anyone, except essential services, from leaving home. Managers have been plunged into the deep end of Managing Remote Workers because, it’s just not the same as managing people in an office environment. And the systems, processes and tools used in office environments, don’t translate easily into “work from home” environments. This course will explain some of the problems you could experience with Managing Remote Workers, and guide you through ways to effectively manage and engage your remote workers so that they remain motivated, committed and productive.
The Remote Worker Management program is an eLearning program that relies on an online Learner Management System (LMS). Therefore, learners need to have reliable internet access with the ability to view videos and download PDF files. Learners will also need to have access to Zoom for the virtual Q&A and Coaching sessions.
Each course is limited to between 5 and 15 learners. This should accommodate individuals and organisations that would like to put their entire team on the program.
The course runs twice monthly, starting on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. There will be no courses starting from the 16 December to 16 January each year.
