Topic: Working with Remote Staff
Abstract: In today’s age of globalization, organizations and their teams are stretched across geographical locations. We are all a part of a global market which works on collaborations across countries and borders. Technology has enabled us to collaborate, supervise and work with people and teams at different geographical locations. Geographical diversity is not just a requirement but a necessity and while working with remote staff has several advantages, managing it can be equally challenging.
This presentation will define the concept of Remote Staff or Virtual Team and how we can successfully build a team of remote staff and successfully manage them. This presentation will also discuss:
- Challenges of work with remote staff and how we can overcome them
- Steps to building trust and open lines of communication
- Using technology and tools with remote staff
- Conflict management with remote staff
