Heather Martin, COO, InterFaithFamily

Across the globe, for-profits and nonprofits alike are adopting flexible work solutions to attract the best talent in their field. There are many benefits to having remote employees, from employee satisfaction with work-life balance, physical office space savings, and environmental relief. Global World is reporting that by 2016, 63 million Americans will be telecommuting.


Managing these new worldwide virtual office spaces can take many forms. This could mean finding people who do not live within 50 miles of your organization’s physical office space — or perhaps you don’t wish to have a physical office space. It may also mean hiring great talent who desire a greater flexibility to work from home. Perhaps it is as simple as having remote office locations that need to be managed by a head office in a different city, state, or area.

This webinar will help you identify the issues that you may encounter when you manage remote staff and help provide you with practical tips, resources, and tools to create an effective and efficient virtual organization that ends up not feeling like a virtual organization. It will also provide participants with 10 key steps to making a virtual organization feel as close-knit and collaborative than any locally-staffed office.
