A GUIDE FOR MANAGERS

Manager training is key to culture change

More and more, employers are zeroing in on culture transformation as the key ingredient in a work-life effort. But culture change is daunting at best. While programs may help, it’s managers who really make the difference. A supportive manager is one who

  • displays respect for his or her employees
  • is sensitive, asks about an employee’s health and gives positive feedback
  • sets measurable goals and focuses on results.

In a study by Canadian researcher Linda Duxbury, those workers with supportive managers reported significantly higher levels of job satisfaction and commitment (85% compared to 60% of those with non-supportive managers), were more satisfied with policies (85% vs. 45%), felt they had more job security (55%  to 20%) and experienced less stress (30% vs. 60%).

WFC Resources’ e-course for managers, The Flexible Workplace: A Guide for Managers, is the perfect way to jump-start a culture change effort. In just two short hours, it will actually help them understand the kind of managers you want them to be, including specific behaviors. They’ll be clear about why this kind of manager is important to the organization’s survival. They’ll see if and how their management style will have to change, take a closer look at the challenges involved and practice different ways of solving them. And they’ll learn about seven flexible work arrangements and how each is best managed. You’re welcome to talk with us about this, our companion course for employees or our courses for managers and staff on telecommuting. Call 1-800-487-7898 or e-mail Susan@wfcresources.com.

Telework is here – Make sure your programs succeed!

Employers are raving about these effective and engaging telework e-courses for managers and staff.

If you’re a decision-maker, you can view these courses and decide if they fit your organization.

Customized and branded to reflect your organization’s approach to remote work, they’ll help managers and staff work together to introduce telecommuting in a way that’s both supportive and effective.

The courses also include an administration section, enabling you to track enrollment and utilization. We also offer pre- and post- initiative surveying, as well as resources to help promote the training internally.

Thinking about allowing your medical transcriptionists or radiology specialists to work from home, at least one or two days a week? WFC Resources has created brand new versions of both our telework courses and our flexibility courses that are specifically designed for hospital staff, both  managers and employees. The telework course for managers will help them move into results-based management, choose the best workers for remote work, set goals and measure results. The course for employees will help them decide if remote work is for them, prioritize their tasks, learn the best way to communicate and design their home office.

A GUIDE FOR MANAGERS

Today’s workforce is evolving into one that’s mobile, working when and where they can be most productive. This guide for remote managers will help your organization maximize the opportunities a mobile workforce offers.

The Virtual Workplace: A Guide to Telework for Managers is exciting, sharp, colorful, fun and highly interactive. And most important, it’s carefully planned to give your managers exactly what they need to succeed at managing remotely.

This all-new course is illustrated with a dazzling array of contemporary photos of diverse workforces. The content, based on ten core competencies, combines facts and quizzes, choices and challenges. It includes streaming video, interactive exercises and a special section on non-exempt workers. There’s a section on managing virtual teams and one on the process for beginning a pilot. It includes a journal that allows participants to record every “aha” – and we predict it will be filled.

And finally, it invites your managers to assess their own competencies from a list of the ten most important qualities for virtual supervision, and directs them specifically to areas that will sharpen those skills.

This course will enable managers to . . .

• understand the concept of telecommuting/telework
• know the difference between myths and reality
• see the bottom-line value to the organization
• respond to employees who want to work virtually
• choose the right people for telework
• manage performance effectively
• communicate effectively with remote workers

They’ll learn how to measure and evaluate results, keep remote workers linked to the office and on the career track, and anticipate and handle problems.

A one-time licensing fee, based on number of participants, will place this course on your company’s Intranet, or on an external website available to selected participants or work groups.
