    "Managing a Remote Workforce"

    For many employers, housing every employee in a brick and mortar office has become a “thing of the past” and thus employers are innovatively managing work remotely. Remote worksites are a great way to expand the workforce, reduce expenses and support work/like balance. Remote workplaces leverage technology’s rapid pace and marries it with business goals and sustainability plans giving the organization a greater competitive edge. The session will provide engagement strategies and tips for developing a remote workforce retention initiatives.
