This webinar cover what other employers have learned the hard way, paving the way for others. We’ll also discuss challenges that you may have never even given any thought. We’ll also look at emerging best practices and innovative solutions to work place compliance problems. Because when it comes to working remotely, the issues HR worries about may not be the issues that become real problems.
Management techniques just don’t always have an answer for the modern challenges you face leading a virtual team. These are unique concerns most of our parent’s workplaces never had to consider, e.g., terminating someone who works virtually and way out in the countryside.
Additionally, wherever there are people, there are employee relations issues which can turn into compliance issues. There are enough misunderstandings in the regular work world, let alone the additional opportunities for miscommunication when coworkers rarely if ever, see one another, and never get a chance to forge personal connections. If you thought investigating employee relations complaints were difficult, try it when the employees live and work in different states.
