Work Remotely Effectively Training

training for working remotelyWith companies encouraging employees to work remotely, it is important to prepare workers to work effectively in out-of-office or home-office environments. Successful remote and teleworkers have a combination of strong communications with their office coupled with superb computer and organizational skills.

This workshop is designed to help participants understand the issues and challenges working remotely or teleworking and provide specific and actionable methods and systems to address these constraints. Participants will learn how to use their productivity tools (i.e. Outlook, Lotus Notes, ACT!) more effectively and become paperless in managing data. Participants will also learn how to use their IT tools along with proper time management to improve communications with their colleagues in their office. Strategies will also be addressed on how to set attainable goals and prioritize to get the desired performance results whether working in or out of the office. Upon completion of the class each participant will develop commitments and an action plan.
