WEBINAR: Working From Home 101 – Best Practices for Architects and Designers
Free AIA East Bay Webinar Series
1 Unit CEU
Join us for a Lunch & Learn conversation about remote work and technology solutions you can use to continue running your firm effectively and efficiently.
With COVAD-19 (coronavirus) dominating the World News Headlines, many of you have questions about continuing business operations when people are required to stay in their homes and not come to the office.
Enter Remote Workplace and the ability for your employees to perform their traditional office job from outside of the office.
This concept has gained a lot of traction in the tech start-up realm. With Bay Area’s office rent prices going through the roof, many unfunded start-ups chose not to have an office at all and set up their business as a bunch of small remote offices.
That’s fine for a small start-up, but how do you convert your architectural design firm that has been relying on working from an office for years? How do you continue to effectively do your work, collaborate with the team, and mentor new talent when you are not interacting with them face to face?
In this discussion you will learn the following:
What is needed to work from home and the optimal configurations for your firm and work style?
The essential tools architecture firms use to connect and collaborate outside of the office effectively
How to mitigate cybersecurity risks when working remotely
Additional tips for utilizing technology and processes to manage and mentor a remote workforce
