Are we ready to work from home?
Covid-19 is now amongst us in Malawi and we are scrambling to figure out how we can get our staff to work remotely or from home. For some, we never thought a day like this would come.
Do our organisational setups and cultures allow for and encourage remote, collaborative working? Do our employees have the necessary skills and tools for such?
Are we mentally prepared for remote/home working?
– Self-discipline (the fridge is just 10 steps away. So is the bed!)
– Time management (knowing when to get up and turn off)
– Tech-savvy (no more Chimz from IT to show you how to attach a report)
– Communication skills (typing out your thoughts succinctly into an email)
Have fun with your (forced) remote working experiments. I am sure some will love it so much there will be no going back!
