1:00-2:30pm - Best Practices for Managing A Remote Workforce – Sandra Cabral, CHRL
Remote work has been a topic for years with many employees vying for the opportunity as one way to improve work life balance. In 2020 employers and employees were thrust into this new way of working. With no time to plan, train, or transition, there have been highs and lows on both sides of the equation. People are social beings. Even for those employees who have experience working remotely, the isolation is exacerbated as it extends to personal socialization. This new way of working affects people’s sense of belonging, collaboration, inspiration and creativity. Managers are coping with this new way of managing while at the same experiencing many of the same feelings as their employees. As HR professionals we need to provide guidance, learning opportunities and tools for managers and employees that consider the overall health and well-being of our workforce. It is a time of change and a time for opportunity. The strength and ability of HR to positively influence these relationships will be essential to business sustainability.
- Health, Wellness and Safe Workplace: Through the promotion of work-life balance (in a remote work environment), communication, employee culture integration, focus on mental health and internal support, HR practitioners are the organization’s partners in people and culture solutions that create responsive environments to keep employees healthy, well and safe at work – no matter where their workspace is located.
- Emotional Intelligence: In order for HR to be impactful, HR professionals should be knowledgeable in emotional intelligence so they may help leadership and co-workers find the balance between their human side and their professional/work side. By fostering emotional intelligence, you can promote understanding, respect, and good relationships across all teams, regardless of their locations
- Relationship Management: Human Resources has always played an important role in building relationships and remote work relationships are no exception. HR leaders are strategically positioned to help co-worker/co-worker and employee/manager remote work connections evolve into healthy, supportive relationships using the seven fundamentals of leadership.
