Managing Remote Employees Training

Our managing people remotely training gives you the strategies and ideas to manage in the post Covid-19 era.  Managing people can be hard enough, but working from home or remotely adds an extra layer of complexity, which this training helps to resolve. As many organisations have been forced to adjust to their people working from home, the challenges of managing remotely have been experienced by many managers for the first time.
This managing remote employees training workshop focuses on the differences of managing people remotely and builds on the principles of people management.
This is a practical session that looks at the reality of managing people remotely. We look at the challenges experienced when people are working from home, for both the employee and the manager.
Strategies, tips and ideas are developed to help managers develop an individual action plan for each of their employees.
