Covid 19: how to initiate successful homeworking

Is your organisation prepared to enforce temporary homeworking to allow your business to continue, yet contain the spread of the Corona virus?
In this webinar you will learn the key components of a successful remote working culture and understand the critical actions that leaders and managers must take to support remote workers and ensure business continuity.
A focus on trust and exceptional communication should be woven into your company response so you can purposefully create a calm, reassuring environment that is motivating and engaging for employees through a period of emergency homeworking.
