Remote work is no longer just a growing trend. It’s the new normal for many organizations worldwide, and this abrupt transformation has seen some thrive while others have struggled with morale and productivity. 

Shortly after stay at home orders began due to the pandemic, a survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) reported that over 75 percent of employers have people working from home and more than half of them now cite a preference to remain remote. Further, seven in 10 of those employers are struggling to help their employees adapt to remote work.

In this program, learn how to assess and develop remote-ready employees and how you can help managers build the key competencies required to effectively lead remote teams.
During this webcast, you will discover:

  • Key remote work trends and challenges
  • The critical competencies needed to be productive and successful remotely
  • The skills managers need to effectively lead remote teams
  • How to assess remote workers’ and managers’ competencies to guide their development
