What’s in store for the office of the future? Well, there’s a very good chance that it won’t be brick and mortar and we better be prepared for the sea change.

Twenty to 30 million people currently work from home at least one day a week.  Contributing factors include telecommuting, flex schedules, out-of-town clients, and global accounts. Our new work culture is increasingly dependent on conference calls, Webinars, and e-mail — a big change from the traditional agency culture rooted in regular face-to-face team meetings, in-person presentations and water-cooler rendezvous.  Whether it is an AE frustrated at the inability to read the nonverbal cues of a client, or a Creative Director worried about employees sitting at home playing video games and doing laundry when they should be polishing a creative brief — the trend of working remotely presents challenges for everyone.   

This Webinar will reveal a new set of best practices for navigating the virtual workforce including tips for solidifying a foundation of trust, giving and receiving feedback remotely, and keeping energy and morale up. By setting clear goals, providing direction, and outlining a communication plan, every employee has clarity to be more productive and connected within the agency and client - even from a distance.
