Program description:

Driving Success with a Virtual Workforce
Across the country contractors are facing challenges managing remote workforces but there are also many opportunities for success. The first thing that comes to mind for many companies is providing the right technology and while technology is part of the equation there are two other vital components, communication, and culture.  This program will explore challenges contractors face, the opportunities to overcome them, and some best practices to foster and achieve success.

 Following this class, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the challenges and opportunities of managing a remote workforce.
  • Understand opportunities to drive communication and foster a productive culture  
  • Implement best practices to manage a remote workforce.  


Please contact the ECA with any questions at (708) 531-0022. We look forward to your participation with the program!  Thank you for your continued support of Association activities.
