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.

What makes a great learner?
Having operated in this learning and development space for the past two decades, I’ve amassed a significant tally of trainees, that have as it were learnt under my wing. A very rough estimate puts it at around 7000 people. In that time I’ve probably seen everything a trainer might expect to come across in a life time! Truly the good the bad and the metaphorical ugly! As a learner it might be very easy to blame the teacher for a poor learning experience, perhaps justifiably in some cases, but without doubt the mindset of the learner will make an enormous impact on the value of the intervention.
