This HR compliance training will clearly explain how you can adapt compliant HR best practices in setting up a virtual workplace plan. It will discuss the key elements, dos and don’ts of effective HR program implementation in a virtual workplace environment.

Why Should You Attend:

Technology at lightning speed continues to reduce the global gap and virtual workplaces are everywhere as an expectation and is even used in some companies as a way to reduce overhead costs. Some employees have never known any kind of workplace but a virtual one. Working virtually has overnight become so mainstream that in some respects you're almost considered "old school" if your business doesn't at least allow it for some jobs.

But as more and more employees flood into a hodgepodge of largely individually negotiated work "agreements", the problems can begin. It seemed easy - employees could just work in a different place, but actually it turned out to be a different way of working. So as they say - fail to plan, then plan to fail.

This HR compliance webinar will discuss in detail the compliance hotspots and considerations of different HR laws implementation in a virtual environment. From job identification issues, existing policy revisions, clarifying performance expectations, having to plan communications, and different methods of employee selection, it will cover all important matters that need careful consideration and planning in a virtual workforce.

It will help attendees to identify how to foster teamwork between people who never traditionally meet or even seen each other.

Topic Background:

Employees can often function quite well in a regular workplace, but fail miserably when working virtually. Working remotely requires a strong set of attributes.

There is a multitude of problems, considerations and changes a business should consider when planning a virtual workplace such as:

  • Successful performance management for virtual workforces will demand being closer than working in the office.
  • Traditional mindset managers, who challenge the program, might be right about some aspects (and some people.)
  • Damage to morale of those employees who are left behind working in the real office, this canceling out virtual employees' engagement gains.
  • HR may have to struggle with getting crucial employees back in the office; as working virtually began as a perk but surprisingly didn't work out.
  • Setting up employees' office at their homes can quickly eat up a lot of overhead gains.
  • Complicating the majority of virtual workplace problems is that often the compliance challenges that an employer faces are not the ones HR and leaders carefully considered and worried about. Because, after all when most HR laws were written, no one considered asking to "go work at the beach."

Job identification issues, existing policy revisions, clarifying performance expectations, having to plan communications, and different methods of employee selection are just a few of the important matters that need careful consideration and planning in a virtual workforce.
