Work-from-home, telecommuting, remote works, and virtual teams are increasingly becoming norms in many organizations for a variety of reasons. Employees need to prepare themselves to excel in these changing work conditions that are strikingly different from a traditional face-to-face work environment. They need to master not only technologies, such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Slack, Jive, and Yammer, but also be effective in how they communicate through these technologies.
Research has shown that some employees feel lonely, left out, and less engaged working remotely, leading to low job satisfaction and performance, while others shine and perform better when working from home. This course will help you find an answer to this paradox—why some employees thrive in the virtual world while others find it challenging.
