VIRTUAL TEAMS: A European Project for Remote Work - The New Trend!

After Covid-19 pandemic, working remotely is growing faster than ever and shows no sign of slowing down. It is the future of work with benefits for both employers and employees. Still, many organizations are struggling to apply good practices and routines to ensure productivity and wellbeing of their remote workers. To make the transition as smooth as possible, those who lead remote teams need to have the necessary skills to do so. 

The VIRTUAL TEAMS 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.

The project’s consortium has developed a practical and innovative toolkit, which supports SMEs, team leaders, managers, HR professionals, trainers and e – Workers in adopting best practices for teleworking. It provides guidelines on the effective management of Virtual Teams for enhanced employee engagement, wellbeing and productivity. The in-service training package course further empowers team leaders, HR professionals and staff to be able to support e – workers and individuals in working remotely. Both results are freely available on the project’s website in Greek, Slovenian, French and Spanish. 

A MOOC on effective management of virtual teams will soon be launched as a one-stop-shop, providing instant access to a full suite of rich resources for VET, HR professionals and Team Leaders. Partners are now in the phase of piloting to collect feedback from the target groups. The MOOC will be accessible via the website.
