Remote Working

#WORKFROMHOME

This hashtag, currently trending in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, also symbolizes the normalization of new ways of working. A new era in which organizations must prepare for the unexpected and adapt their traditional ways of working with speed and agility.

Crises take many different shapes, but they’re often, by definition, unexpected. You need to react quickly to preserve your employees’ safety and job security. You have to adopt flexible and agile ways of working in order to secure business continuity. And you must be ready to ride the next wave.

In exceptional times, organizations experience extreme disruption and uncertainty, demanding decisive action across three critical dimensions:

People

  • Fine tune leadership skills for remote working
  • Ensure team motivation and engagement in a remote environment

Performance

  • Run projects and workshops remotely
  • Orchestrate a remote creative design approach

Technology

  • Select and deploy the right tools for secure remote working
  • Embed cybersecurity and security by design

To achieve such a decisive response in an uncertain world, your organization must embrace the technology and the new ways of working that will enable it to anticipate, react, and sustainably respond to any crisis.

You may have installed the right tools, have access to your files and have calls scheduled in your calendar, but that’s a long way from replicating your unique company culture at home.

The key lies in the expertise of your team leaders and the experience they enable. In the creation of an engaging, interactive, and inspiring digital environment for your team to come together and solve problems, wherever they are.
