The world of work is in the midst of a reckoning. From finance to retail to hospitals to energy to technology, there’s not one sector that has not felt an impact of the COVID-19 pandemic of its toll on the economy . But we’re evolving, and quickly. Weeks in, many organizations are past that sudden pivot to remote teams and are now stepping back from doing triage to think about what’s truly important for supporting our people. That includes technology, security, and knowledge — as in learning the skills, approached, and technologies we need to know to function. Laying the framework for a successful shift to what happens now, and in the future, depends on expanding on the lessons we’re learning right now.
Today I’m talking to Michelle Boockoff-Bajdek, Chief Marketing Officer at Skillsoft, to #WorkTrends for this sponsored podcast on the key to remote workplaces that allow your people to excel, thrive and grow. We’re going to talk about the challenges for leaders and managers to engage and support their remote teams, why knowledge is so important right now to all of us.
