Venue: Online Training
|Event Date/Time: Aug 09, 2012||End Date/Time: Aug 09, 2012|
Every organization should be prepared work in a virtual workplace. The preparation will include training and coaching employees to be successful in the virtual workplace (which is not about the selection of specific individuals or technology).
Why you should attend: Managers and employees need to remain relevant by upgrading their skills to incorporate the process and technology necessary to manage effective virtual workplace environments.
The Virtual Workplace is fast becoming more the rule than the exception in organizations. As the workplace is changing and we recognize that "work is something that we do and not a place that we go", we must ensure that our employees are trained to thrive in the Virtual Workplace.
