Time Management and Productivity Skills for Remote Professionals

As marketing teams around the globe have transitioned to working remotely, whether it’s “for now or forever,” this transformation has created new challenges when it comes to effective time management and productivity practices, that risk impacting overall workflow.

The virtual world demands different skills than the face-to-face world, and organizations that educate their teams on the skills needed to thrive in a virtual work environment will create a competitive advantage and enable their workers to produce at their highest capacity while increasing employee satisfaction and talent retention rates. 

Being successful in the “work from home” world is more than just finding space to set up a laptop with an accessible power outlet. Most employees have not been trained on or had extensive experience with effective virtual communication, remote scheduling and time management, or distributed team collaboration skills. Add to this the fact that, as humans, we are highly dependent on visual and audio cues to communicate effectively, and without them our brains don’t always process the information we’ve been provided.

To help modern marketers thrive in a virtual work environment, this highly engaging on-demand course shares the essential skills, tools, and frameworks necessary to succeed as either an individual team member or team leader.
