Working from Home 2024 – Is it really working? - 22 February 2024 (On Demand)


How to manage challenges of working from home for business success

Working from home was promised to improve employee productivity and workplace satisfaction.

Yet, the latest research suggests working from home may have the opposite effect.

Why have so many large companies from around the world asked their employees to return to the office?

Studies and real-world examples suggest challenges of working from home can include:

  • Substantial reduction in productivity
  • Loss of situational awareness and empathy from staff
  • Significant increase in customer complaints

This webinar will examine the challenges of managing a remote workforce, with ideas on how to navigate these challenges.

Find out how to manage issues and concerns relating to staff performance, productivity, communication, career development, and use of technology.

Explore practical solutions to manage staff when you or your team who work from home. Consider when a return to work is beneficial.

Create systems and policies so that your staff can work successfully from home within your organisation.

We will consider case studies from professional services firms and government organisations.
