Why Should You Attend:

More and more organizations are “going virtual,” whether it is an employee who telecommutes, a team of workers in another country, or simply an employee who connects from a virtual workplace.

Approximately 80% of U. S. workers continue to do business remotely after normal work hours. More and more organizations are incorporating telecommuting and other forms of virtual work into their workforce with great success and reduction in costs.

The virtual workplace is a reality that is expanding and influencing how organizations do their work. The new virtual work environment offers exciting opportunities as well as challenges to avoid liability.

Managing remote or virtual workers requires a management mindset change that differs from managing on-site workers. Examining, planning, and implementing legal and contractual issues are not always considered in the same way when managing on-site workers.

This training will help participants understand how to manage virtual teams/workforce vs. on-site team effectively to balance growth and cost, while addressing the legal and operational challenges.
