submitted by lopezfr@augsburg.edu

When: January 16, 2020 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST
Level: Introductory
Track: D&I Strategy
Presenters: Veronika Hucke, D&I Strategy and Solutions | Lisa Kepinski, Inclusion Institute

Globally, more than half of companies allow some form of remote work and, in the U.S., it is already a commonplace reality. Remote work can positively impact how we all do work, providing benefits to the employee, the organization and society. Having access to great technology tools and solutions is a vital part of enabling this way of working now and into the future. Yet, equally as important is the experience of being a remote worker and addressing the challenges associated with creating a strong sense of belonging and inclusion in the virtual workplace.

This webinar will share insights from a recent global research study on inclusive remote work and will offer practical tips for what works. Additionally, a case study from Citrix outlining how they have created an inclusive environment for distributed teams to heighten engagement, inclusion, belonging, retention and productivity will be shared during the webinar.

Learning Outcomes
– Understand the framework of remote work and the employee’s experience with this way of working
– Learn about the opportunities and challenges with remote work from multiple perspectives
– Receive pragmatic inspiration on what to do going forward
