Communication in a Remote Work Environment

The spread of coronavirus is leaving a wide swath of economic damage in its wake. In the shutdown phase alone, up to 53 million US jobs were vulnerable—a term used to encompass permanent layoffs, temporary furloughs, or reductions in hours and pay. While leisure and hospitality accounted for most of the earliest layoffs and furloughs, the share from industries such as retail trade, manufacturing, nonessential healthcare, and professional services has been growing. It is estimated that up to 57 million US jobs are now vulnerable, including more and more white-collar positions.

Communication is the foundation of effective remote work.

Keeping employees engaged and connected while enabling ownership, it increases the probability of quality, efficient work. However, distance is often hard to overcome and whether you are a supervisor or employee, work can suffer.

  • Identify, understand and thoughtfully prepare for the multiple types of communication in the workplace
  • Understand the power of communication cues and learn how to better utilize signals when in-person engagement is not possible
  • Learn how to prevent or mitigate barriers that are hindering effective remote communication
  • Engage in live, video-chat mock interview & coaching sessions. Mock Interview is one of the most effective practices for preparing for an upcoming interview. When you practice your answers, you’ll deliver them more confidently.
