Remote employees have been around for a number of years, but (obviously) their numbers have multiplied dramatically in the past three years.
While numerous benefits have occurred from this transition in the workforce, significant challenges remain. Disagreements are common regarding who should work remotely, how often they should come in to the office, and practical issues (communication methods, staff turnover, onboarding challenges) continue to be points of contention.
Hear from Dr. White as he shares his observations from working with numerous types and sizes of organizations, including
common themes and underlying issues. And benefit from his work and research in how to build healthy, positive work cultures – even in the midst of the new remote and hybrid workforce.
As a result of participation in this webinar, attendees will be able to:
1. Identify the most common challenges associated with the surge of remote employees in the workforce.
2. Recognize the underlying competing needs and desires of employees and employers that create the tensions experienced.
3. Implement action steps with their coworkers (and organization) that will serve to facilitate healthy communication and reduce tension related to the challenges of remote and hybrid work patterns.
