Working from home is nothing new, and for many years businesses have successfully embraced the home working culture. However, as we move through the second lockdown, the ONS tells us that over 30% of the UK workforce is either working exclusively, or partially from home, and it is becoming increasingly apparent that the ‘new normal’, as it has become, is throwing up unforeseen issues for many people and organisations.
Employees who have been used to the structure and camaraderie of an organisational workplace are having to adjust to a new working lifestyle. Equally many businesses supporting their home workers are having to adapt to new technological, compliance and management practices and challenges to ensure that performance, productivity and risk are not compromised.
In our new programme ‘Remote Working in the New Normal‘ we focus on three key areas that will help to raise awareness, adapt existing skills and develop new ones to support employee performance and minimise risks that might occur through home working.
In module one we look at the operational and compliance related requirements for effective home working, and explore the personal skills that you may need to hone or adapt to become more efficient and productive.
In module two the focus is on increasing awareness of the risks associated with cyber security, and we consider the ‘must’ and ‘must-not’ do’s when home working.
Finally, in module three its all about developing awareness of the impact of home working on your mental health and wellbeing and understanding how to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
This programme contains a range of eLearning courses and exercises and activities, as well as tips and tools that you can use on a day-to-day basis, and is available to access via either the eAlliance Learning Zone or your own organisational learning Portal.
