Jeffrey Hughes, Region Manager - Vocational Rehabilitation Services gives an update on Indiana's experience with supervision in a virtual environment. In 2008, Indiana VR implemented a Virtual Office environment through distribution of appropriate technology, relocation of offices, and development of paperless capabilities within our case management system. As part of this management initiative, they developed supervisor competencies for successfully operating within this virtual environment. This webinar is part of a series where members of the NIDRR-funded RTAC project on VR Program Management present the lessons they¹ve learned through their management initiative. The RTAC is a collaborative initiative to identify, test, and disseminate management practices to build a performance management model tailored to the vocational rehabilitation system.
