Globalisation, advances in telecommunications and networking technologies, the increasing emphasis on flexible working and work/life balance, environmental concerns, and the fragile economic climate, all are forcing us to consider innovative ways of managing our impact in our workplaces. One response is an increase in the prevalence of ‘distributed workforces’ in the form of virtual teams working in remote settings: working from home, in dispersed offices, hot-desking in different offices or regions, and working in different countries and continents.

Virtual working provides challenges and opportunities requiring more than organising and deploying team members. How can you and your organisation get people working remotely and in virtual teams to work well together across geographic, cultural and organisational boundaries, to deliver results quickly, effectively, and consistently? The HRCgroup Virtual Team Orientation Model (VTO) enables you to examine the challenges and opportunities of virtual team working – strategic clarity, technology, behavioural management, organisation transitions, cultural awareness - as well as the skills and perspectives for working remotely and in virtual teams, and how to manage virtual teams and foster the behaviours of high-performing virtual teams.
