About this course
In partnership with:
While continuing to navigate our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, as organisations and employees consider transitioning office-based workers to a new remote working option permanently, it is necessary that managers are trained to optimise team performance. They also need to protect the wellbeing of each team member, whether they all work remotely, or some are based in the office and are part of a hybrid team.
In this new era of hybrid teams and shift in management practices, it is vital a manager also knows how to manage their new workload, reduce pressure, and protect their own health and wellbeing. With this in mind, we have created a 60-minute eLearning course to provide managers of remote workers in Northern Ireland with the tools to manage and motivate their teams, optimise performance, and achieve organisational goals.
About remote working
Working remotely is not a new concept and has been practised by some organisations from as early as the 1990s. However, until the COVID-19 crisis hit Northern Ireland, there were still many employees who had never experienced working outside of the office. In addition, managers were not experienced in either managing or motivating these employees in a remote setting.
A remote worker is anyone who works from home or another place, away from the office. This can be either occasionally, or permanently, full time or part-time.
According to the Belfast Telegraph, 41% of Northern Ireland companies are set to let their staff work from the office and home.
