With the right policies and strategies in place, virtual work can help organizations save money, improve productivity and access a global talent pool. Yet failed implementations have led some organizations to avoid or limit virtual work, citing issues with accountability and engagement. How can you, as a leader, create an environment where everyone feels like part of their organization and contributes their best — whether from across the hall or around the world?
In this session, we will examine the factors that differentiate organizations who successfully integrate virtual workers from those who struggle, and the role of leadership in developing an effective virtual (or partly virtual) organization. We will discuss the challenges of managing and developing virtual talent, creating and sustaining a culture with a virtual workforce, establishing virtual work policies that support productivity, and the technology investments that are key to your virtual organization’s success.
