We discuss, explore and debate the key 6 areas of HR and L&D and the impact of the virtual and remote teams, how they function, what support they need.



As team structures have evolved, has our HR support to these new teams shifted to account for the new challenges brought by virtual employees? Are at risk of losing the engagement of our key employees because they are remote workers?
