This week, my reports are dedicated to developing remote workplans. The rapidly spreading Corona Virus has awakened many companies to the fact that they need well-developed plans in case wide-spread quarantines force employees to work from elsewhere.
Harvard Business Review says there may be a silver lining in this. For example, thinking through such plans could provide data that will inform future efficiencies. If your company is mapping out ways to increase remote access, identify metrics that will help you reflect on aspects of the plan you might not have considered otherwise.
Ask what worked, what didn’t and why? What you learn may lead to a continuation of new processes and practices. For example, if the crisis led to less travel and more money-saving video conferencing, you may decide to continue that into the future.
