Since 1996, NCU has been at the forefront of virtual leadership. To demonstrate our success and commitment to excellence in virtual leadership, NCU’s School of Business has a 3-pronged approach:
The Center for the Advancement of Virtual Organizations (CAVO) is a hub of relevant, current information and practices aimed at supporting diverse, industry professionals and educators in all aspects of virtual work. Hosting both research and real-world examples, NCU’s CAVO partners with external experts around the remote workforce, innovations in virtual work, and supporting technologies to grow a knowledge base and expertise.
Virtual. Remote. What's the difference?
A virtual organization is one where employees engage in a limited physical corporate office presence, connecting remotely via technology.
A remote job is one where an employee works at other locations often returning to a corporate office.
Although the terms virtual and remote are often used interchangeably, virtual work happens through teams or individuals operating at a distance with some degree of self-direction and autonomy (Burma, 2014; Caillier, 2013; McCann & Kohntopp, 2019).
