As more organizations offer flexible work situations and allow employees to work remotely, they face new challenges in managing those workers. Some common issues employers have when managing remote employees include effectively managing employees scattered across different geographic areas, meeting their constantly changing needs and developing successful strategies despite infrequent face-to-face contact. The compound effect of these challenges makes quality of hire even more critical.

During this complimentary TALX webinar, Gerry Groe, managing director of Business Development for TALX assessment division, pan, and Darleen DeRosa, managing partner with OnPoint Consulting, will address these challenges and offer solutions for hiring, developing and leading a virtual team.

Groe and DeRosa will also introduce attendees to the RAMP model, a method for effectively managing remote employees:

• Relationships — Building trust with the team
• Accountability — Fostering a positive team attitude of accountability
• Motivation — Having a high-impact influence from a distance
• Purpose & Process — Creating a high-touch environment

HR, training and development, and managers and executives interested in learning how they can develop an effective strategy for selecting, managing and motivating their remote employees are encouraged to attend this hour-long educational session that will teach them the best practices for leading a virtual team.

“Leading from a Distance” is part of an ongoing series of complimentary webinars presented by TALX industry experts.
