Event Summary:   
Selecting & Supporting Remote Workers
Remote workers, distributed teams, telecommuting...all terms that relate to people who don’t work in a co-located office, or at least work away from the office part time. What competencies does an individual need to have in order to work successfully in this kind of context? What kind of support and feedback do they need in order to grow and thrive in an oft-time isolated environment? Having spent the past year researching this area, Roberta will break down the findings and offer practical suggestions to help HR professionals navigate through the somewhat murky waters of hiring and supporting remote workers.
Roberta Sawatzky is a passionately curious business coach and educator who cares about collaborating with others to equip, inspire, and challenge people to be all they were created to be. She has been involved with people development for the better part of her 30 year career. Ten years ago she transitioned from a leadership role in a not-for-profit organization to that of a consultant. In this capacity, Roberta has provided consulting and coaching services in the areas of Human Resources and Strategic Management. Her latest area of focus is remote workers.
As free events, catering is not provided at Roundtables but a full selection of coffee, tea and food is available for purchase at the front counter. For previous attendees of Kelowna Roundtables, please note that that coffee and tea will not be provided in the back room going forward (as is consistent with other Roundtables elsewhere in BC).   
Seats are limited and Roundtables often sell out. You are required to register online in advance (first come, first served - if you register and are not able to attend, please advise so we can make room for others).
