Five months into 2020, and we’re already seeing permanent shifts in the way we live and do work. Remote work, once thought a perk that forward-thinking companies offered, is here to stay. Despite this change, hiring top talent and motivating your team to new performance heights in this brave new remote working world remains the same, but with different nuances.
Join the President and Founder of Teamit, the SVP of Engineering of Shift Technologies (yep, the company that’s brought the process of buying and selling used cars into the 21st century), and the Founder and CEO of Tugboat Logic (the start-up that takes the misery and mystery out of security and compliance for companies like Schneider Electric, Heap, and Act-On) for this online panel discussion on their experiences managing distributed teams and their recommendations for taking remote teams to new heights of success.
