Managing a project and managing human resources using distance technologies requires a different mental framework than face-to-face or in-person office models.

Explore the many strategies used to manage a distributed workforce: including assignment, and project management, engaging virtual meetings, connecting socially using tangible and digital strategies, and developing a trusted/trusting social environment for employees who may never meet in person.

As a result of this session, you will be able to:

  • Describe the elements of social presence with remote workers
  • Identify tools and strategies for engaging social presence
  • Create an “open” virtual office door policy
