Lunch and Learn: Managing Remotely

Friday, 12 July '19   12:30pm – 1:15pm BST
Desk Village, 78 High Street, Hurstpierpoint, BN6 9RQ

This first Lunch & Learn is free to non-members!


Get advice on how managers can generate engagement from distributed team members in a world where remote working is becoming the norm.

Take a break, bring a sandwich, and learn something new!

Lunch and Learns are free for Desk Village members with no reservation required. Non-members are very welcome, and your ticket doubles as a day pass so you can get some work done before and after the session.


We’ll discuss drivers of employee engagement and identify a range of behaviours, approaches and techniques that will increase your effectiveness as a manager.

Working remotely can cause challenges for the employee and their manager. You'll leave the session with numerous tips on how to improve communication and useful tools that will help engage your remote team members

For those who are not managers, we'll help you identify your own drivers so that you can increase your own productivity when working remotely from your colleagues.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • define 'employee engagement' and the benefit it brings to an organisation
  • understand the key drivers of employee engagement and the challenges that affect managers and remote employees
  • apply management techniques, communication skills and tools to increase remote employee engagement
