Covid19, Virtual Teams and Training

Over the years, advances in technology and employee preferences for a flexible workplace have led many organizations to offer employees the option to work virtually. As the spread of COVID-19 continues, more companies are choosing to allow workers to office remotely.

Having plans in place for virtual and remote work lets organizations meet changing conditions quickly. Figuring out how to manage a workforce with limited physical interaction can be challenging. When virtual team members work remotely, how can they develop an appreciation of other employees strengths and weaknesses to work more efficiently, both as a team and with other parts of the organization?

More importantly, as the distributed workforce becomes a norm, the functional skills of team members is not a guarantee of team effectiveness. Having a team full of people with exceptional technical skills or degrees, the team can still fail to perform as a well developed and cohesive group.
