Working from home is the focus of the next International Confex webinar. The session, moderated by Heidi Williams, director at Remote360.com, look at the key challenges of not having teams working in one place and what steps the panel have taken to make things run more smoothly.
The topic is once again on the agenda with the Government once more recommending working from home where possible. For some, leaders have been left either deflated after the work they have put in to make offices Covid secure, worried about employee wellbeing or uncertain of where boundaries lie in terms of performance tracking.
Williams is joined on the panel by RD Whitney, CEO of 365 MEDIA and co-founder and director of the Virtual Events Institute, Brennan McEachran CEO and co-founder at Soapbox and Kellie Reynolds, head of event operations at Capital Events.
The panel will discuss the best flexible arrangements, and the non-negotiables in working-from-home, how to manage and monitor your team, without smothering them, helpful technology, maintaining a personal connection and how to induct new starters.
The session takes place at 4pm, 15 October. Attendance is free.
