Online Workshop

Working Online

When working away from the office, reliance upon technology increases significantly. We use technology for a whole range of different types of communication – talking to each other, seeing each other, sharing information, keeping track of workflow, knowing who’s available and when, and so on. Our on-line workshop will provide tips and tools in setting up Microsoft Teams and maximising adoption. 

When: 4pm UK | 12pm US EST| Thursday 16th April

Where: Online (Link will be sent out 1 hour prior to start of event)

The Issue

If people aren’t used to using the technologies that they’ll need to rely on – or they don’t use them in the right way, then problems can ensue. People can’t find what they need, don’t connect with colleagues because they are not competent in the use of the technology, or lose touch with what’s happening with colleagues if they don’t keep up to date.

Fortunately, tools like Microsoft Teams provide a well joined up experience for people working apart – as well as when they are in the office together. So we need to ensure that everyone has the right level of competence and is sufficiently motivated to adopt the right practices and behaviours.
