Remote workers can struggle with distraction, isolation, and poor communication. We can help them get the best of remote work.
Remote working is touted as a wonderful flexible opportunity – and it is – but too often we don’t help our people overcome the challenges. In a 2019 buffer.com report, the biggest challenges reported were unplugging after work, loneliness, poor team and manager communication and distractions.
In ‘Welcome to Remote Working’, learners explore what they can do to answer these challenges in their environment, and are guided in the creation of their own Remote Work Action Plan. Give your people the training to make the most of remote working, and yourself the peace of mind that they have it.
By the end of the module, your people will be able to:
- Identify the wellbeing risks in working from home and respond to them
- Set up a home office work space that meets basic ergonomic requirements
- Identify ways to mentally compartmentalise work from home
- Identify the importance of routines for breaks, lunch, starting and ending days
- Describe the importance of keeping in touch with the team and identify methods they can use
- Explain how to keep clear communication and share expectations with their manager.
