The world is undergoing a big shift. While optimists claim this is earth’s rest time, we all can’t just shut shop and stay put. The show must go on…and most of us are compelled to grapple with the new work-from-home (WFH) diktat.

Luckily, for the content team at e27, it is business as usual since most of us work remotely anyway. But we understand that transitioning to WFH is easier said than done.

From all those water-cooler moments to birthday cakes and lunch meetings to staring at your plant for a work buddy and running out of coffee, WFH may get depressing.

Add to that connectivity challenges, noisy neighbours and lack of human touch to virtual communications, the fear of misunderstanding each other and losing focus remains high. To help you overcome these trying times, e27 invites you to join a webinar to learn how to manage remote teams.

Part of a webinar series designed to help you cope with the COVID-19 crisis, this webinar will teach you everything you’ll need to know to make a smooth transition from working at the office to working from home. Whether you’re a manager, professor, individual producer, or HR specialist supporting staff through a new remote-work policy, we think you’ll find something in this webinar that’s worth bringing home.

We have roped in Sean Liao, CEO and Founder of Imaginato, who has built and run remote teams for years now for Lazada and Zalora, and Wai Hong, Chieftain and Co-founder of StoreHub, who along with his remote team just launched a new feature in the last 48 hours whilst working remotely.

What you will learn:

  • How to prepare your organisation and team for remote work
  • The dos and don’ts of remote working — making remote working, work.
  • StoreHub’s transition from office to remote amidst COVID-19 mayhem
  • How to manage a decentralised team
  • What tools should companies be using and why
  • How to build and maintain a strong working culture with a remote team

As teams around the world focus on health and safety and move to remote work, we want to do our part to support you to stay connected and clear on work and priorities.

Register now: The webinar How to manage remote teams will happen on Thursday, March 26. Limited slots available!

The e27 Webinar series is an effort to share actionable insights with the startup community to improve their day-to-day work life. These interactions are laced with advices, inspiration, and productive human connection for learning and development and sharing the best practices with the e27 community in Southeast Asia.
