Tele-Working with Results
Get your remote workforce on the track to success!
There is no question about it, the number of people working from home increased DRASTICALLY over the past month. With social distancing being the key to slowing down the spread of COVID-19, the CDC recommends that"for employees who are able to telework, supervisors should encourage employees to telework instead of coming into the workplace until symptoms are completely resolved." In fact, the search term "Zoom" was the most search word on Google multiple times over the past two weeks and is now considered "the defining app of the coronavirus", with over 50 million downloads (just from the Google Store) in these recent weeks. Being that Zoom is considered "the leader in modern enterprise video communications", this speaks volumes to how quickly we are all trying to adjust to the concept of social distancing at work.
While the concept of working from home is one that many employees have fantasized about, in hopes of a more flexible work schedule and a shorter commute, this sudden change is not going to be all sunshine and roses! Even as a seasoned work-from-home employee, I am finding myself more distracted than normal with my children home from school and my constant need to wash my hands and spray things with Lysol.
Elevate has been working as a remote company that is committed to your professional development for more than 10 years so it is safe to say that we know a thing or two about Tele-working with Results!
With this sudden and drastic change in the way we are getting our jobs done, businesses are quickly discovering that not all of their employees are cut out for this work-from-home business. Employees that thrived in the office, may not be suited for the same role remotely. The industry has caught on and within the past two weeks, I have seen a bevy of businesses claiming to be experts in the field. I mean...we can all gain a thing or two from taking a class on working remote right now, right?!?! And you know what...we thought it was such a good idea, we even created a series of our own!
Designed to help all the members of your organization with learning topics like Time Management When Working Remote, Balancing Life When Working From Home, Managing Virtual and Remote Teams, and Social Distancing for the Social Butterfly - these courses are obviously useful & informative during these trying times...but I have a feeling this is not the first 'learning how to work remote' seminar you have been invited to!
The Elevate difference is that our series is designed to help you actually understand the unique working styles and personalities of your team members to ensure their productivity while working remote! With well over a decade as a "remote workforce", Elevate has plenty of experience, knowledge, and know-how to share on the subject that will set your entire team up for success! Each course includes a complete core value & needs assessment for each of your employees so you will discover what makes your them tick! You will leave this training with the tools you need to create a more cohesive remote working experience for everyone.
Coming to you live, from our virtual classroom, this series offers 4 customizable courses, each targeted to different members of your team. Take them all, or pick just one...sign up your entire team, or just a few members...IT'S UP TO YOU! Just pick up the phone and call Julie to customize this series to your needs and check out all the details HERE!
