It’s been a hectic couple of weeks. A lot has changed in a very little amount of time. Along the way, we’ve faced a ton of new challenges. Despite the massive heartbreak we’re feeling across the world, I like to think that when we come out the other end of this COVID-19 pandemic, we’ll have some takeaways that can better prepare us, should we face another serious virus.
Prior to the virus spreading, the number of employees working remotely in the U.S had increased by 115% in the past 10 years. That increase accounts for 43% of the entire US labor force working from home at least part of the time. We can only guess what that number is now.
Many of us have never worked from home and may feel ‘remote’ and forgotten. While new employees may feel abandoned or inadequately trained. And a lot of managers are new to overseeing employees and projects remotely. They may feel a loss of communication with their teams because impromptu stand-up meetings to discuss a problem or work out a kink can no longer occur.
As such, I’ve been getting a lot of questions (and asking some myself) on how to effectively work and manage teams from home. For a lot of us, it represents a seismic shift in the way we approach our jobs. With employees feeling isolated and anxious, it’s more important than ever to keep open lines of communication. Because the last thing we can afford is missed deadlines.
Whether you’re an employee or a manager, it’s vital that you keep the flow of information transparent and easily accessible to ensure everyone stays on task. And to help you get there, I thought I’d host a new webinar on the topic of remote working titled, “An Expert’s Advice for Successfully Onboarding and Managing Remote Employees,” where I’ll leverage my years of managing coders and auditors remotely and give you successful tips in managing remote employee and help you:
- Effective and Fun Communication Strategies
- Efficient Ways to Manage Projects and Increase Productivity
- Smart Tricks for Onboarding New Employees
- Proper HIPAA Privacy and Security Policies
