Managing Distributed and Remote Workforces 2021


How to successfully prepare your business for a distributed workforce and manage remote working arrangements

Since COVID-19, remote working arrangements and distributed workforces have transformed workplaces.

A distributed workforce improves staff productivity while saving employers costs and attracting global expertise.

Despite the benefits, distributed workforces have proven challenging for workers and employers alike. Many workers struggled with remote working during the lockdowns, with technology issues and a lack of support and collaboration with colleagues.
