Working with Digital Nomads #TIMETOLEAD
18 June 2020
In new Episode of our #TIMETOLEAD leadership podcast series, Chris Smith, Global Head of Audit, talks about working with Digital nomads.
Digital nomads have been around for several years - but who are those digital nomads? Covid-19 has made the world a virtual laboratory - testing our effectiveness to work in virtual teams. We have been forced to think about what the consequences are when working with remote professionals. How do you manage them, and what are the challenges and opportunities? Being a digital nomad himself, Chris explains how he has successfully led a virtual team these past few years.
The current crisis has resulted in a significant increase in remote working. But working from home, and leading a remote team also poses challenges. How can you create and maintain a good team dynamic? How do you measure the team’s productivity, and how do you engage with clients?
In an open discussion with Eleisha Stevens of InspireWorx, Chris talks about the engagement of a remote workforce, client satisfaction, and the need of digital collaboration platforms.
Alla Savchenko, President of BDO in Ukraine, shared her thoughts on the subject of digital business transformation.
Alla Ivanovna notes that business worldwide is now moving to a new level, accompanied by a new way of thinking.
“Digital transformation is the digitization, both internal and external processes with technologies that help businesses improve their operations that during the coronavirus pandemic may be the main solution to many problems,” said the President of BDO in Ukraine.
How did BDO manage to switch to a remote mode of operation in just one week without losing efficiency? How will the company be transformed in the future? What needs to be paid attention to and done today to be ahead tomorrow? Listen to the answers in our podcast.
