VIRTUAL TEAMS: supporting collaboration, productivity and wellbeing in virtual teams and remote workers

Working remotely is growing faster than ever and shows no sign of slowing down. Thousands of organizations in Europe and the world have shifted to working remotely. Still, many are struggling to apply good practices and routines to ensure productivity and wellbeing in their workforce during these challenging times. To make the transition as smooth as possible, those who lead remote teams need to have the skills needed to lead them effectively.

This project aims to help Leaders in Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to acknowledge the importance of digital skills and wellbeing practices in maintaining healthy and productive virtual teams.

Its objectives include the development of appropriate competencies in team leaders to better manage virtual team wellbeing and productivity and at the same time enrich their capacity to use the appropriate technological tools. Virutal Teams also aims to equip HR professionals with tools and skills to be in a position to promote positive organisational cultures by adjusting their policies, practices and procedures and support their staff.
