    How the Alignment of an Organization's Communication Methods and a Remote Employee's Learning Style Impact the Effectiveness of a Remote Worker: A Positivistic Case Study
    Dissertation
    Amy Jauman
    2012

    An increasing number of organizations are employing remote workers because of the cost and hiring benefits for the organization as well as the appeal to the worker. Remote workers are being drawn to the remote environment because of the increased flexibility it offers. As this unique work force grows, consideration has to be given to the best ways to communicate with and provide learning opportunities for remote workers. There is a natural tendency to believe technology is the primary key to success for a remote work force, however emerging research is showing the human element is equally important. I found that a remote worker‘s learning style, the communication vehicle, and communication content are three key elements that contribute to a remote worker‘s effectiveness and job satisfaction. Additionally, I discovered remote workers make adaptations in their own environment as individuals or as teams in an attempt to increase effectiveness.
