It is said that 50% of the UK’s workforce will work remotely by 2020 and numbers are rising year on year. This has had a dramatic effect on how people manage their own workload and communicate with colleagues. Aside from professional life, it also has an effect on people’s work life balance but not always in a positive way.
This is the sister course to our ‘Managing remote workers’ course. It offers an employee centric view of working remotely and how to adapt so that we continue to bring our best. It offers useful communication, planning and reporting techniques and explores how we can continue feeling a sense of morale and team even when we are not physically around our colleagues.
This is an increasingly topical and important course and one of the first of its kind. It has been developed from our experience in developing and running several large ‘agile working’ programmes that focused on both managers and employees. The success of these courses informed various articles and also saw us work with Brighton University in how remote working affects worker psychology.
