Seize Your Opportunity for Growth – Federal Employees Working from Home
As the current pandemic turns our routines upside down, you may be trying to figure out exactly how to do your job outside of your workplace environment. You may face many challenges while transitioning to telework – hardware, software, internet service, and cybersecurity concerns, to name a few.
In addition to these technical concerns, you may also find it difficult to adjust to wearing your work hat while you are at home. This becomes even more trying if you need to find suitable activities for school-aged children who are under your care while schools are closed.
There is a plethora of information being distributed through about social distancing, hand washing, personal protective equipment, and other topics related to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Pandemic. Keep in mind that The World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control are highly-reliable primary sources.
So, as you find a spot in your home to do your work, adjust your schedule, and establish lines of communication with your group, you still may find that projects may be delayed, programs may be scaled back, and the pace of your work may be significantly impacted. Initially, this difference may be a welcome change, but before long, you may find yourself looking for ways to maintain productivity.
Why not use this lag time to pursue your professional goals? Wherever you are, you have 195 virtual training options available – some that lead to certificates or certifications. You can brush up on existing skills, expand your knowledge, or dive into a new subject area altogether.
Management Concepts has been offering virtual course delivery for a portion of our classes since 2012. Now, to help federal, state, and local government employees continue to pursue their professional development aspirations, our entire organization has shifted focus to ensure that we can deliver as many courses virtually as possible. When you choose virtual training, you can expect the same high-quality content and instruction that we provide in the classroom.
Here is a short video that shows it works.
