July Virtual Chapter Meeting

Managing Virtual Workers Today

   Speaker: Dr. Bob Nelson

With the nationwide move to have employees work from home to limit social distancing in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, many managers are faced with virtually managing their employees for the first time. Already 36 percent of employees report they would give up a pay raise for the ability to work remotely; 40 percent would be willing to take a pay cut for that option.

Find out what it takes to successfully manage virtual workers, learn the pitfalls and successful tools and techniques other organizations are successfully using on this topic, and increase your confidence for effectively getting work done through workers who are not in the office.  By allowing greater worker autonomy and flexibility, companies can greatly expand their potential pool of talent, which is especially important in light of the increasing shortage of skilled labor facing all organizations today and in the years to come.

Objectives attendees will learn include:

  1. Recent research, trends and practices shaping the virtual workforce
  2. Work challenges & opportunities in the use of remote workers
  3. Successful strategies & techniques in managing virtual employees

Each registered attendee will receive a copy of The Virtual Manager by Kevin Sheridan.
