Remote and hybrid work is becoming the new normal. A rapid shift towards remote working is here to stay as 73% of employees would like to work from home on a permanent basis. 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. Transitioning from office-based to virtual teamwork requires new processes and mindsets. Our Remote Team Working course provides managers the strategies their staff need to collaborate and succeed in remote and distributed environments.

This is the sister course to our ‘Managing remote teams’ 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.

Remote Team Working Courses FAQs
I regularly work in a difference location to my colleagues and boss, does this make me a remote team member?
If you are working from a different physical location than your manager and most other colleagues, even if just some of the time, you are considered part of a remote or hybrid team.
Some examples that would make you a remote team member include:
- You work from a branch office while the rest of your team is at company headquarters
- You work from home 2 days per week while your coworkers are in the office 5 days
- You are full-time remote but the majority of your team works on-site
- You are contracted or freelance and work outside of the office that employs you
- You travel frequently for your job and are often working in virtual settings
- You are part of a fully distributed team with members dispersed across locations
The key distinction is your lack of physical proximity and in-person contact with your direct team on a day-to-day basis. This brings unique challenges like decreased visibility, connecting across time zones, and communicating through technology.
Our remote team training provides strategies and mindsets to help employees in all these situations thrive and collaborate effectively despite the distance. Contact us to discuss training options tailored to your specific remote work arrangements.
Will this course help me to work better with my remote colleagues?
We will show you how to deal with a number of the issues that can emerge when working in remote teams, enable you to improve how you and your colleagues work together.

We aim to prevent issues with communication delays, misalignment, and relationship disconnects that can emerge on hybrid teams with some on-site and some distributed members. The course will provide both mindsets and skills to help you work cohesively with colleagues across locations. Let us know if you have any other questions!
How is remote working different than office-based work?
