3 Things Every Business Leader Must Know To Avoid the Pitfalls of a Remote Workforce
Wednesday, June 17 at 2 to 3 p.m. EDT
With the onset of Covid-19, businesses across the globe quickly pivoted to a work-from-home (WFH) work strategy to avoid the health risk associated with the virus. As people have adjusted to the new normal of remote work, business owners and managers are weighing their options to return to the office, offer modified remote working or implement permanent WFH strategies.
Business owners who shunned remote work policies in the past have discovered recently that WFH actually has its benefits. Studies have found that productivity and job satisfaction increases when employees are given the option to work remotely – but only up to a certain number of days. After that, productivity drops dramatically.
Join us as we host Cindi Filer who will share the pros and cons of a remote workforce.
