How To Manage Remote Workforces To Enable Location Free Working
Location Free Working is a concept of being able to work effectively, regardless of location or when work gets done.
In our latest video series, Marc Ueckermann, Chief Technology Officer and Business Owner at Xenith, explores 6 crucial elements of enabling location free working.
Marc recently presented this content at the Enterprise Digital Workplace 2020 conference in November, alongside companies like Ikea, JP Morgan and BAE. The talk was very well attended and stimulated lots of debate amongst IT & transformation leadership professionals. We will be publishing extracts of the talk over the coming three weeks, but you can also watch the full presentation video here.
In Part 3, Marc talks about 'Managing Remote Workforces' and how this can enable location free working, including:
- How managing a remote workforce is currently a challenge for many business leaders, but also has the potential to be an opportunity
- The role IT leaders need to play in managing remote workers
- How China's largest travel agency increased productivity and reduced costs by testing a remote working strategy
"IT leaders are going to have to be proactive to ensure employees have the proper setup and that it can be managed remotely."
