Remote working was on the move even before March 2020, offering a new set of pros (flexibility, larger area to source talent from) and cons (lack of in person social engagement, security considerations, management challenges) to companies across the globe. In the wake of many companies rushing to work-from-home scenarios, and many more enacting dusty BCP plans that had never considered the WOW case scenarios, the first concerns in March were to get everyone online, back to being somewhat productive, and many leaders we spoke to were (rightly) primarily concerned with their teams mental and physical well being.
Risks and Challenges of Remote Working Teams
- Protecting your organization against the massive spike in cybercrime during this global crisis
- Your employees ability to rapidly adapt to new ways of working
- Upskilling on the fly to new technologies and systems to use (ie zoom, teams, etc)
- Keeping your remote teams engaged and productive as the crisis continues and the future still seems uncertain
- Working as a leader in your organization towards increased agility, contributing to a positive work culture, and maintaining your own productivity!
In order to meet the challenges above, a strategic view should be applied as to how to encompass positive culture change, organisational and team agility, digital skills, remote work capabilities, and cyber security awareness all in one go (cough cough, we do this). Here are some quick wins you can score along the way to engage your teams, deliver cyber awareness learning, support agile mindsets and build a positive work culture– to prove that these out of the box approaches work, to lay the groundwork for a larger learning program, or just to keep everyone in the loop in something that goes beyond a tick box exercise. (Cause we all know how employees, especially those under stress and quarantine love those one size fits all, long, dry, and dated e-learning modules).
