Philly SHRM Webinar

Program Description:

For a variety of reasons, more and more leaders are managing employees that are remote. While managing remotely can offer many benefits to business as well as to employees, managers of remote employees are faced with a new set of challenges they did not have when managing face-to-face. This webinar explores some of the unique challenges remote leaders face and discusses strategies that can be used to manage performance, develop teams and individuals, communicate more effectively and maintain employee engagement.
