How to turn virtual teams into real communities
Many organizations face significant metamorphoses in the work from home era. Business practices are evolving rapidly, from procurement and manufacturing to marketing, customer service and beyond. Digitally-enabled remote working has its advantages: efficient distribution work, productivity gains from time spent commuting, fewer interruptions, and often greater autonomy.

Today’s workplace may be digital, but humans remain resolutely analog. What happens to corporate cultures when our inherent need for human connection, thought partners, teammates and our “community of colleagues” are permanently disrupted?

How do you immerse a new employee into a culture that at the moment is mostly virtual?

7. MARCH 16th - 3-Hour Online Workshop: “THE WHAT THE HELL APPROACH TO JOB SEARCH” - $80
Many job seekers take a passive approach to their job search that invariably includes several hours a day sitting behind their computer answering online ads. This often doesn’t create a lot of positive progress, particularly when you are 1 of 200 respondents to an ad. That’s why an effective job search requires a “what the hell do you have to lose” attitude that creates more interest, more activity and more interviews. This also includes a bold, proactive “marketing” campaign where you are packaging your background, constructing the right messaging and engaging your audience. This small group workshop will be led by NSENG Founder, Marty Gilbert, and will focus on 13 somewhat “unorthodox” actions you can take to stand out from the crowd of numerous qualified candidates. His novel "What the Hell" approach was recently awarded a trademark from the US Patent Dept.
