In response to the pandemic, many State VR agencies are permitting their staff to work from remote locations, including their home. Telework options are becoming a more permanent fixture in how agencies will provide services in the future. Much has been learned in this past year to identify promising practices in remote supervision.

This webinar explores techniques for effective supervision of personnel working at a State VR agency remotely, providing concrete examples of what some agencies have already implemented with their workforces. It will assist supervisory staff to shift their work practices to effectively manage rehabilitation services and programs.


Topical areas covered include:

  • Modeling appropriate work behavior to improve performance of the work unit
  • Designing an effective workspace in a home office and establishing daily routines
  • Managing staff performance remotely
  • Goal setting and developing work plans
  • Developing and performing Annual Performance Reviews
  • Creating professional development goals.
  • Organization and planning strategies for supervisors
  • Communication strategies
  • Creating collaborative work teams

Resources and tools will be provided that supervisors can utilize in their daily work.
