Your company acquires a team based in another country. A switch in company strategy requires the formation of new teams. A project is cancelled and team members suddenly need to be reassigned. These scenarios happen, so how do you handle these changes to your teams?
What about having your team members choose for themselves? What if this included your offshore teams and remote workers?
If this sounds like a crazy idea, then this talk is for you.
This engaging and light-hearted talk will be an honest reflection of the experience exploring, introducing and facilitating remote friendly Self-Selection at Travelstart – the largest Online Travel Agency in Africa. I will share the highs and lows experienced from preparation, through execution to where it is now, many months later.
By sharing practical experience and challenges I hope to encourage more companies to give their teams the freedom of self-selection – even when considering remote employees.
