Episode 3: Remote Technologies & Remote Work

Technology bridged the gap when the pandemic and its shelter-in-place orders meant most employees were working remotely. Microsoft Teams became a particularly useful tool for us at CBIZ, helping us with everything from COVID communications to internal team members to facilitating training and professional development.

Phil Zaman of the Financial Services Learning and Development team and Elizabeth Newman, CBIZ Chief of Staff share some of their experience with remote technology:

  • How technology assisted in the immediate aftermath of the shutdown orders
  • Tips for getting the most from your remote communication tools
  • Ways remote technology assists with training and professional development
  • Shifts that could be coming in how remote technology is perceived going forward
