As with many aspects of business, technology is transforming the way we work. Many employers have embraced technology to increase the proportion of freelance, contract and remote working to reduce the need for expensive office space. While a remote workforce can reduce overheads, increase productivity, and widen the pool of available talent, it can pose difficulties in terms of culture, management, and leadership development. Designed for members with a remote workforce or planning to increase contract, freelance or flexible workers, this dinner will provide an opportunity to discuss challenges and ways to overcome them.
This event will explore, but is not limited to:
- How to optimize communication technology and collaboration tools
- Deciding which roles and personality profiles are best suited to remote working
- How to motivate, manage and develop people with a virtual model
- Maximising the benefits and avoiding the pitfalls when structuring a remote workforce
