Virtual work can be a powerful tool in an organization’s HR strategy. Properly managed, virtual work can help an organization recruit and retain top global talent, increase staffing flexibility, improve morale and track performance against KPIs in entirely new ways. However, building a successful virtual workforce requires HR to adapt its approach to acquiring, developing and supporting both virtual and in-office team members.
We will discuss what makes a successful virtual worker, how to screen for the necessary technical and soft skills during the hiring process and how to provide virtual workers with meaningful opportunities to develop and grow their careers. We will also explore how issues such as training, regulatory compliance, diversity and anti-harassment policies play out in a virtual environment.
