Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify the ways in which being virtually connected has changed the way that practitioners view work, the challenges it has engendered, workarounds that have been devised, as well as where the science is failing the field (i.e., where future research is needed).
  • Participants will be able to identify how technology can be effectively used to promote recruiting, selection and employee development within virtually connected work.
  • Participants will be able to identify the mechanisms through which telework can be effectively implemented and how this may differ when dealing with virtually connected work with a global audience.
  • Participants will be able to explain how the team’s structure will impact staffing, communication, and trust within virtually connected work as well as identify the tools that can be used to mitigate these challenges.
