In a recent statistical round-up by Remote.Co, it shows that remote work can increase worker productivity and reduce employee turnover while driving efficiency and engagement – a huge benefit for employers. With this trend deemed as “the future of work,” our next HR Tailgate will focus on how to effectively manage remote teams and the ins-and-outs of how to thrive while working remotely.
The host of this month’s chat is Anu Mannathikuzhiyil, one of G&A Partners’ expert client advocates. Our special guest hosts are Dan Cross, Talent Acquisition Strategy Manager for Capital One, also recently named to the “30 under 30 HR Professionals” list in SHRM’s HR Magazine, and Kathryn Moody, Editor of HR Dive, where she’s been tracking the changes to strategic approaches to HR for three years.
If you’ve never participated in a Twitter chat, you’ll be surprised at how simple it is to participate. A Twitter chat is a live conversation focused on a topic — for example, in March, the topic was workplace bullying. The chat has eight questions; chat participants can engage in dialogue with chat hosts and other chat participants by answering the questions and using the hashtag #HRTailgate. (Forbes shares everything you need to know about a Twitter chat in this article.)
