“With technology and globalization moving at the rate that it is now, there is a push for leaders to acquire new skills and best practices to lead their organization to the next level,” shared John.
In his upcoming speaking engagement on Next Practices in Workforce Leadership, John will be talking about how to effectively utilize virtual teams and resources for companies to face the global efficiency challenge.
A report by the Global Workplace and Analytics and Telework Research Network, published in Forbes Magazine, reveals that although big companies such as Yahoo and Best Buy have removed the option for their employees to work from home, many companies continue to offer this, because they have found that they can get more high-quality work done quickly, without the need for in-house employees to complete the tasks onsite.
“The latest developments in communication, project management and other collaborative tools, as well as the ease of internet access worldwide, have made virtually any place in the surface of the earth an office.” John pointed out.
“It doesn’t matter if you are working with a team of outsourced individuals working in another country or local employees working from the comforts of their own home.The key to becoming a globally effective leader is how to bring your virtual team together. Click To Tweet
