Lesson 1 of 5 from Flexwork and Telework Early Adopters

Virtual employee engagement doesn’t have to be hard, but it does have to be intentional!
Fellow Stylus Publishing author reviews Working Virtually: Transforming the Mobile Workplace. Her new book, You Got This, is a powerful resource for all educators, and her book review is focused especially for higher education educators! Enjoy Dr. Katie Linder’s share.
Look what I found! I was a featured expert in this 2009 Inc. Magazine article. It all still holds true today, even though the technology providers have changed. Update tips in my 2017 release, Working Virtually: Transforming the Mobile Workplace.
Working Virtually is a permanent part of the workplace today. Transactional work – provided by freelancers, contract employees or consultants – has increased exponentially. It is forecast that as much as half the labor force will be working independently and virtually by 2020.
Most organizations and leaders are still grappling with how to effectively manage their virtual staff and how to effectively support and motivate them. This is an increasingly urgent task as more Millennials join the workforce with changed attitudes toward work satisfaction and organization commitment. Working Virtually is the fruit of the author’s three decades of experience planning and implementing remote work initiatives and training virtual team leaders. It’s the perfect primer for executives, support functions, team leaders and virtual professionals. It provides expert guidance for anyone planning a shift to mobile work. Whether you manage teams of teleworkers or are yourself a virtual team member, you are a leader with shared responsibility for virtual teams that produce successful outcomes.
