New White Paper Shows How To Leverage Virtual Workforce Realities





NAPERVILLE, Ill., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Keeping virtual employees connected and engaged can be one of the toughest challenges in the new age of virtual work.  Finding ways to leverage this unparalleled opportunity for expanding marketplace penetration is the focus of a new white paper by the Performance Improvement Council (PIC) of the Incentive Marketing Association (IMA) entitled, Virtual Workforce Realities.

In the paper, author Tina Weede, PIC member and president of USMotivation, explores how today's virtual environments can connect dispersed employees, improve communication and bolster employee engagement by using the power of technology to solve business challenges and strengthen organizational effectiveness.  

"The PIC executive team was particularly impressed that the paper not only chronicles successful examples for using technology to inform and engage employees, but that it also presents a clear step-by-step list of best practices that any company can employ to make the most of using today's virtual solutions," said Karen Renk, IMA Executive Director.

Noting that productivity levels among virtual work teams can increase from 10 to more than 40 percent, the paper concludes that the ultimate success of virtual workforces relies on the skills of good managers and technology that enables the people-oriented aspects of work.
