In today’s modern global economy, telecommuting is no longer a novelty. Companies and organizations everywhere are embracing the game-changing benefits of allowing employees to work outside the office, and the results are profound: managers benefit by saving money and resources and by having access to talent outside their zip codes, while employees enjoy greater job opportunities, productivity, independence, and satisfaction—in part from the time saved not commuting.
The reality is clear: working remotely can be a win-win for everyone.
But that win is only possible when companies have a plan for supporting efficiency and fostering streamlined, engaging teamwork, and when individuals are prepared to collaborate productively.
What better way to learn how to work remotely than… remotely!
Below courses will be provided in a remote-only environment and will require you to have access to

- great audio equipment, preferably a noise cancelling headset but any other good headset will suffice
- if possible, an external HD camera for your video presence
- If you know your company has a very tight firewall in place, attend from one of many co-working spaces around or a pub with good internet. Work anywhere where it suits the needs.
