LAS VEGAS—Pants might be optional when you’re remote working, but cultivating a successful remote work management system that maximizes productivity and value, is not. Remote work expert, author and consultant Chris Dyer, CEO of background check platform PeopleG2, is speaking and participating in an idea share session at the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) 2021 annual conference and expo this weekend.
“The future of work is flexible, creating culture and success in remote work doesn’t have to be difficult or overwhelming—I will be sharing my insights of years of remote work management experience and expertise in helping businesses become more flexible and effective,” said Dyer. “The SHRM conference provides tremendous opportunities for professionals to connect and share not only stories of success, but of failure, and how gained insights can drive measurable change.”
Benefits include increased employee engagement, higher retention and lower operating costs. In a world where 76% of Millennials would prefer to have a job that pays less money if it offers flexible work, acquiring top talent is becoming more and more difficult without allowing employees virtual work options.
As the CEO of a fully-remote workforce with 26 full-time employees and 3,000 independent contractors, Dyer has a deep understanding of the benefits and challenges that come with virtual teams. Dyer attributes much of this success to creating a phenomenal virtual workforce where employees strive to do their best every single day. In the session, Dyer will be sharing secrets for a high-performance culture where virtual employees thrive.
“We are going to share how to develop a familial workplace culture where virtual employees feel emotionally connected and invested and how leaders can build two-way trust and better communication and understanding between talent and managers,” added Dyer. “We will also explore how to spot when certain job functions or employees are simply not compatible with remote work.”
