In response to COVID-19, many businesses and organizations across Vermont are rapidly encouraging their employees to begin working remotely. From technology questions, to maintaining team collaboration, to effectively managing staff, there are many elements to consider when transitioning to a remote workplace.

On this webinar you’ll learn from Eric Hart of NPI Technology Management who is deep in the midst of providing technology support to companies going remote, and hear best practices and tips for effective remote work from Cheryl Eaton of Guru who developed the Remote Work Thrival Guide e-book. You’ll also hear from Scott Comeau of VEIC who will share his experience from the frontlines of VEIC’s rapid transition to a remote workplace. Most importantly, you’ll have the chance to ask these experts any questions you may have about going remote with your company or organization.
