I think it’s important to acknowledge the reality that we all face right now whilst in the midst of a global pandemic, both as individuals, families and businesses. Sadly, there is very little that we can control about the situation, other than staying at home and follow the governments guidelines to reduce the disease spreading and deaths increasing.
However, what we can control if how we respond to our situation, and to try and embrace this period of isolation as an opportunity, because we have to quit literally stop our normal way of working and living. So, this enables us to objectively reassess what is working in our business and what isn’t.
Which brings me onto the topic for today – Making remote working work.
So how do you make remote working work for you? Well it partly comes down to the tech, but if you’ve got the confidence in yourself and ability to communicate, its actually really easy.
So how did we go about it? Well, we sent out a communication to all clients that all our services were to be delivered remotely. We then provided training for the Team and created one of our internal WOW’s which is Way of Working, we put it to the test, each employee had to test Microsoft Teams and off we went, rocking and rolling out remote way of working.
We then published a ‘Remote Working Guide’ for our clients, so they knew exactly what to expect.
What to expect
we utilise Microsoft Teams which is available to everyone at the click of a link. As long as you have a Wi-Fi connection, then work can be carried out remotely which is the same as if we were together in a physical environment.
We are able to deliver ALL of our services remotely including the implementation of systems compliant to ISO Standards and ISO Support Plan services. This includes, but is not limited to:- –
The only possible limitations for remote working include –
However, whilst there are a few limitations, Blackmores is able to offer alternative methods to continue work –
