DO YOUR STAFF HAVE THE NECESSARY SKILLS TO WORK FROM HOME?
With many companies restructuring the way their workforce is physically deployed, a new skill becomes paramount: are you able to work from home? Not whether you have the facilities to do so, or whether the nature of your work allows it, but will this environment enable you as a person and employee to function optimally?
A new set of skills becomes important as companies may need to decide who to keep in the office and who to send home. Employees who are very productive in the office may struggle to work from home, while the opposite might be true.
Hard times demand soft skills and based on current literature on working from home, we have put together a test battery to assess individuals’ potential to working from home successfully. Together with other information at the company’s disposal, this could contribute to the maintenance of productivity as people are physically deployed.
