Session Description

Fifty percent of today’s employees work virtually as of 2020. Thirty-six percent of employees would give up a pay raise for the ability to work remotely; forty percent would be willing to take a pay cut for that option. Is your company maximizing this labor source, making it a competitive advantage for your organization? By allowing greater worker autonomy and flexibility, companies can greatly expand their potential pool of talent, which is especially important in light of the increasing shortage of skilled labor facing all organizations today and in the years to come. Find out what it takes to successfully manage virtual workers, learn the pitfalls and successful tools and techniques other organizations are successfully using on this topic, and increase your confidence for effectively getting work done through workers who are not in the office.

  •   Building trust, teams and accountability with virtual workers
  •   Technology tools and strategies for extraordinary communication

Thrive is a unique innovation enabling employees to contribute a portion of their salary to student loan repayment and allocating a percentage of their employer matching dollars to that debt. For example, if an employer’s retirement plan has a matching provision of 5%, an employee can determine how much of that 5% match to allocate to retirement and how much to their student loan debt.
