New e-learning course to maximise the benefits of remote working

Posted: 11th February 2021

CIC in partnership with e-Learning and accreditation experts Accredex, has released a third E-learning course entitled Smarter Not Harder. Smarter Not Harder supports companies and individuals with the most effective and efficient ways to manage remote teams.

Prior to the COVID 19 pandemic in 2020 the number of organisations deciding to work remotely was only rising very slowly with some reluctant to offer employees flexible working arrangements. For most this was a matter of belief, trust, or fear. When the virus forced organisations to let employees work from home many were pleasantly surprised how well it worked. This created the motivation for change.

Smarter Not Harder is here to help participants learn how to work and manage remotely, helping individuals, leaders and teams to work smarter and unlock previously untapped capacity. The course shares tips, tools and techniques that can be easily implemented and have an instant impact on productivity. In fact most course participants see immediate results and typically achieve an improvement in productivity of 15-20% within a matter of weeks which equates to an additional 3 days per month.

Graham Watts OBE, Chief Executive welcomed this second course saying, “This third course in our suite of e-learning training is timely given that COVID-19 has forced many companies to address their remote working arrangements and the Smarter Not Harder Course will bring much-needed support for the new way of working. We are really looking forward to offering it”.”
