Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) December 28, 2005
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and DNL Global, a human capital management consulting firm, announced today that DNL Global will sponsor HCI's Virtual Workforce learning and research track. The track is one of several topics addressed in HCI's Talent Strategy community of interest, a community HCI considers essential to organizations working to leverage human capital.
"Leading virtual employees in today's global business environment requires understanding the many opportunities and options that are available," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's Executive Director. "We're pleased that DNL Global, a leader in human capital global solutions, is supporting this important track. Through research and new ideas, we will focus on helping employers maximize talent and minimize potential obstacles as they manage a virtual global workforce."
Today, virtual employees can be found in almost every business. In the U.S., nearly a fourth of the workforce telecommutes at least some of the time. Remote teams, telecommuting, and office hoteling, once experimental concepts, are now part of everyday business.
Virtual work, however, is entering a new phase. Corporate expansion and globalization means that teams or entire workforces are now often located in different parts of the country or the world. Recognizing the challenges of leading a "virtual global workforce," this learning track will explore methods for effective collaboration. The Thought Leader panel will examine new ideas and trends, as well as best practices in remote workforce management. Webcasts, white papers, education, and other resources are all aimed at providing human capital professionals with information they need to effectively manage today's workforce.
"The virtual workforce continues to expand, and management must likewise expand its knowledge in order to compete in today's business environment," said Lori Blackman, President and Founder of DNL Global. "We're pleased to support the Human Capital Institute's efforts in this important area."
