How to make the switch to remote work without losing momentum

As many organizations shift their teams to remote work and telecommuting arrangements, questions about team productivity and business continuity need to be answered.

  • How will my employees adjust to their new work environment?
  • Is there enough work to keep my team busy?
  • How do I ensure they get help and support their needs?
  • Could this be the new norm? If so, is my organization prepared?

It’s imperative for managers in today’s connected business environment to act quickly and make smart choices to keep their teams and organization moving forward.

Here are 4 things Global eTraining customers are doing to switch to remote work without losing momentum.

1) Start Training Now:

While strategic business decisions are being discussed, don’t let your team sit idle. Without sports, events, and the daily commute, your team may already find themselves with more free time. Take advantage of this opportunity to build a well-trained, more productive workforce.

Assign Courses and Encourage Self-Development

In addition to further skills development within your core software(s), we’re encouraging our customers to assign additional software and soft skills training.

In addition to our extensive Autodesk library, consider training in the following categories:

  1. Microsoft Office 365
  2. Total Leadership
  3. ISO 19650 Global BIM Standards
  4. View all courses in the ‘GeT Everything’ library
