Managing Home Workers

Bespoke virtual training for your organisation

Managing the productivity of a team of people with different needs, skills and personalities is a difficult job. Managing them remotely poses even more challenges.

With more of us than ever managing home-based workers and teams, it is vital that we are equipped with the skills to ensure that they flourish.

This virtual training session provides remote managers with the tools and techniques to help their teams work efficiently, happily and to a shared agenda. It builds understanding of how to structure and monitor independent work, and explores ways of overcoming a range of common challenges faced by home workers.
