Bringing teams together from around the world: Video case study

Posted on: 20 August 2015

As business becomes increasingly global, more organisations are struggling to bring their workforces together. Gone are the days when people met regularly in a single location for meetings or an event. Teams are now collaborating across oceans and continents. We're seeing a rise in people working from home or remotely thanks to e-mail, cloud solutions, social media, Skype or WebEx, and easy wi-fi access. 

Expertise is no longer geographically specific. If you need advice, you don't have to rely on the person being down the road or waiting until they're next in the area. Although nothing will replace face-to-face interaction, technology is enabling businesses to operate in ways that were unimaginable 20 to 30 years ago.

Old Mutual Wealth is one company that has been pushed to find ways of managing a workforce that is spread across the world. They launched a global learning programme for their managers called Enabling Positive Futures. Managers from across the business in Hong Kong, Singapore, Europe and America were enrolled on the course, but the cost and hassle of regular meetings to deliver the course over several months was prohibitive.
