Description:

This webinar training discusses the legal and contractual perspectives of managing the remote/virtual employee. It will highlight the opportunities and challenges that the virtual workplace offers. The current competitive business environment and the changing nature of work and the workforce requires effective leadership that spans the boundaries of time and space to help employees to work together – apart. Participants will understand the dynamic interaction between technological systems and human systems that the virtual leader has to address and how to implement prevention strategies to minimize liability by designing and developing virtual policies.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

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.

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.
