Management Development Programs Today Need to Add This Topic

HR Bartender

Forgive me for the cryptic title on today’s post. I won’t keep you in suspense. The answer is, management development should include “virtual” management of remote workers. My guess is that managers are being asked to supervise an increasing number of remote or virtual employees. Even if they only do it on a part-time or sporadic basis. A great case in point – – the news headlines last winter that said, “ 75 percent of the population will suffer below-freezing temps this week ”.

Your Employees Are Worried About Their Jobs. Could Training Help?

Cornerstone On Demand

Over the last decade, the economy has bounced back from one of the worst recessions in U.S. history, and the unemployment rate is the lowest it has been in 50 years. Today’s workers can theoretically afford to be more selective—they should have the upper hand when it comes to where and how they choose to work (especially with the rise of remote opportunities). As a result, you might assume employees are more confident in their abilities than ever before. Not so fast.
