We would like to invite you to the second panel webinar in our “Employees at the Centre: Remote but not Distant” series, looking at the world of remote working. Where the first webinar (a summary of which is available to view online) focussed on employee engagement, the second will look at monitoring and managing performance remotely.
We are delighted to be joined once again by Mel Robinson from ADP and Stuart Martin from IBM, as well as welcoming Chris Donnelly, Founder and CEO of VERB, the luxury digital marketing agency. He will share his experiences of moving VERB to a fully remote workforce, including the challenges that have arisen and how they have been managing performance since the transition.
