Due to COVID-19, Many Employees Are Becoming Remote. Did We Lose Sight of Our Work?
with Dr. Douglas Williams

The sudden movement of workers into a remote work environment is often harder than many initially believe. New remote workers, including their management team members, have difficulties in sensemaking, the finding one’s place in any new working context. Many technologies have aided the quick transitions and organizational realignment into the remote work environment.

However, worker settlement into remote work situations remains difficult to overcome without a common framework. This is especially true for the COVID-19 being a catalyst to suddenly shock our work environments into a rapidly changing and likely unstable revised working culture. As a result, team member onboarding, engagement, and retention practices can be considered suspiciously weak given a context of long-time, slower to change traditional work management practices.

This webinar is being held to help you understand remote worker enablement based on over a decade of practical experience and applied doctoral research.
