STAYING CONNECTED WITH A DISPERSED WORKFORCE

The workforce is changing rapidly. An increasing number of employees work offsite, by choice (theirs or their employer’s) or by necessity. Given the increasingly global nature of today’s organizations—as well as improvements in technology that facilitate virtual collaboration and a workforce that insists on more flexibility and independence—this trend is likely to keep gaining momentum.

In this course, we discuss the benefits and challenges of offsite working relationships for employees, managers and organizations and how to create effective working relationships.


RESPECT IN THE WORKPLACE (ANTI-HARASSMENT AND ANTI-DISCRIMINATION)

In light of the #MeToo movement, many organizations are realizing that they need to offer employees and managers proper training on identifying and reporting incidents of harassment and discrimination. Our course takes a broad approach to identify elements of your workplace culture. We also talk about workplace bullying and the responsibilities of bystanders. Separate sessions are available for employees and managers.
