ENSURING
BUSINESS CONTINUITY
DURING THE
COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Massive remote work policies are radically
changing the way we interact with each other,
and organizations who know how to manage
it will be successful.

Organizations should prepare for:

• Quarantined employees
• Office / facilities shutdowns
• Decrease in travel for face to face meetings
• Abrupt changes in the behavior of your customers and all stakeholders

Organization

Organizations should be Ready to:

1) Manage communications effectively, and faster than ever making sure every employee is promptly and adequately informed of what to do and what not to do.


2) Distribute risk whenever possible, by relocating critical work among different locations.


3) Be prepared for a quick shift in demand, reinforcing digital experiences and adjusting policies and processes to be efficient during contingency.


4) Quickly close any gap in terms of Culture, Infrastructure and Security.


5) Efficiently work with a distributed workforce, in an organized and consistent manner. 

Key considerations for remote work

How to enable working remotely in a way that maintains (or enhances) business operations:

Write a policy

In this specific change management process, individuals can be overconfident in their abilities.

Create a mentorship program

To prevent any dreaded remote work isolation and ease the transition to virtual, new-to-remote professionals should connect with more experienced peers as soon as possible to help guide him/her through the new world of virtual productivity.

Do not assume you
already have experience working remotely

In this specific change management process, overconfidence is rampant, and could be the crux of sustainability. 


Cuadrado

Do not assume that your workforce knows
how to effectively work from home.

Location independence may seem like freedom, but in reality it requires
keenly developed soft skills. Without these, a distributed workforce is
likely to feel disconnected and unproductive.  

Cuadrado

Do not replicate your office environment

“Going remote” is not as simple as conducting business as usual from a laptop. How people work is very different.
