Remote working is one of the spinoffs the Internet revolution has brought about. It is through the Net that in many instances, teams are not required to be together in person. They can interact remotely and work independently.
While this system brings enormous benefits-flexibility, enhanced productivity because of less time spent in stressful travel, more time for the family, which is a sure means to increased productivity being some of them-it also brings its drawbacks. The advantages the Internet brings notwithstanding, there are situations where coordination is difficult when people who work on a project are based in different corners of the world.
Lack of discipline among the teams that work remotely is one of the problems associated with remote working. There is also the belief that people are spread out, they are difficult to keep track of, which could potentially mean lost hours and lessened productivity. So, finally, although remote working has its advantages, it brings with its some elements that organizations should learn to deal with.
The ways by which to make distance working more productive and efficient will be examined and taught threadbare at an extended, three-hour session that TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of human resources, is organizing on September 10.
