I am a student working on my MBA at Kenan-Flagler business school and am currently taking a class called Effective Virtual Teams. We had a guest speaker visit our class yesterday to give us a presentation on their Smart Planet offering. The new software they have developed promotes working in virtual teams and/or internet collaboration. She outlined their software, but also described how IBM implements these new tools.
- IBM employs +400K around the world and 50% of them work remotely
IBM is just one of many companies realizing the benefits of virtual teaming- this is a growing trend across major companies. This trend opens up many opportunites for military spouses to work from home – or wherever suits you.
If you are feeling frustrated by the professional options available to military spouses, you should check out what types of remote jobs are available.
