Turning the Unexpected into an Opportunity – HR Resources for Leading Remotely
Mariah Nelson
Jessica Olson, RHIA

This session is divided into two parts.  First you will hear from Jessica Olson as she discusses Turning the Unexpected into an Opportunity.  2020: A year of unexpected challenges has brought growth opportunities and a “life is too short” mindset. Jessica will be talking about transitioning from onsite work to becoming a fully remote team. During this transition, the team has gone through ups and downs. At the end of the day, they are a team that has grown together professionally and personally. Focus on the positives and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish! 

The session will end with Mariah Nelson sharing HR Resources for Leading Remotely.  Leadership looks different with a remote workforce.  As more employees transition to working remote, leaders are being challenged to find new ways to onboard and engage employees, share feedback and manage productivity remotely. HR Resources for Leading Remotely will focus on HR resources and strategies for leaders who have a fully remote, or partially remote team that will help set you, and your team, up for success.
