Does it suit everyone?

If we think about the sorts of skills which are suited to remote working, we would probably include:

  • Self-motivation
  • Good time management
  • Resilience

As a result of the pandemic, large numbers of people have had to work from home and many of them may never have chosen that for themselves.

Think about the skillsets in your teams and consider whether you have anyone who is better suited, and would much prefer, to be office based. During the current time, they may have to work from home and so in order to keep them motivated, you may need to check in more regularly to make sure they are coping.
