Keeping Remote Staff Motivated When Everything Has Changed
Understand the science of motivation and ways leaders can keep staff feeling motivated, engaged, and included when everyone is working from different locations
Presented by Cynthia W. Rojas on October 21, 2020
It has been six months since many nonprofit organizations closed their offices and deployed their staff to work remotely from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even as we realize we are in this pandemic for longer than we had originally imagined, staff are still struggling with this new way of working. Many nonprofits plan to continue to work from home well into the new year. This workshop will offer an understanding of the science of motivation and ways leaders can keep staff feeling motivated, engaged, and included when everyone is working from different locations. Participants will also hear from other nonprofit organizations who have tackled this issue and are finding innovative ways to keep staff motivated.
