The second edition of Rayda Connect, conversations and learning sessions on issues affecting businesses held recently at Workstation, Victoria Island, Lagos.
It featured panel sessions, which addressed navigating remote and distributed teams, insuring business fixed assets, and streamlining fixed assets disposal.
Chief Executive Officer, Francis Osifo, said the gathering serves as opportunity for executives and business owners to discuss experiences in managing businesses and focus on networking opportunities.
“One of the things we’ve seen is that a lot of companies spend money acquiring fixed assets, but there is usually no visibility and oversight on how those assets are moving and whether those assets are providing value for the business. Whether it is from the point where you acquire them to the point where you manage them or even to disposing of them.
‘’Today, our employees are not in one city or in one country. This poses problems like how to get work assets to them, how to recover these assets when they leave, how to streamline the disposal of those assets, how to ensure those assets are secure and that information and intellectual property that sits on those assets don’t get tampered with.” he said.
The first session dwelt on “Navigating remote and distributed teams, moderated by co-founder Miniemoney, Ada Armstrong, with Bodunrin Akinola; Chief Operating Officer ,Termii , Atinuke Idowu, and Head of Operations, Flex Finance, Jerry Okon, as discussants.
Problems and challenges of working remotely were discussed. The discussants all spoke on sub-themes – tracking productivity, identifying strengths of team members as well as employees’ challenges – Internet connectivity, power, work/life balance, and more.
Rayda has also introduced PrivateSale, a platform for business owners. PrivateSale is one of Rayda’s offerings where businesses dispose of their fixed assets through a private virtual auction and get paid for value of their assets in less than 48 hours.
