One of the greatest impacts COVID-19 has had on the global community involves the historical shift to virtual employment. Although tasks remain largely the same, the implementation and ways in which employees interact and learn have greatly shifted. As a result, many have had to fend for themselves learning how to thrive (or possibly survive) in a potentially unfamiliar environment. Join us as Rothwell & Associates provides a closer look at the learning needs of virtual workers.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Summarize the impacts a new virtual workforce has had on employees
- Explain best practices for training virtual workers
- List how to measure learning based on virtually-acquired skills
