Resist the Urge to Spy When Managing a Remote Workforce
Jun 30, 2020
Managers are often concerned that workers will be distracted by personal issues and their environment, leading to a drop in productivity – even though studies have shown productivity tends to increase overall when employees work from home.
With the recent changes, organizations had to get very good at remote work very quickly to survive. Tom Niehaus, Executive VP, North America, lays out some important lessons about setting expectations, increasing communications, and focusing on productivity and results versus activity volume.
Tom Niehaus was named Executive Vice President Operations, North America, in May 2019. He previously worked at CTG from 1999 to 2011 and was an integral part of establishing and growing the Company’s Solutions operations. Prior to his recent appointment at CTG, Mr. Niehaus served as Managing Member of TJN Advisory, a private advisory services consulting firm, President and COO of Encore Health Resources from 2012-2017, and CEO of Encore in 2017 through its eventual divestiture to emids, a global provider of healthcare IT.
