Organisations have been forced into the world of remote working due to COVID-19. While many were unprepared, the overall trend is that remote working, in some form, is here to stay.
Companies can either benefit or lose from remote working. When teams fail to adapt to this change, companies run the risk of revenue loss, failures in productivity and loss of employee engagement. Data security reduces and the investment in IT infrastructure and systems become an unrecovered loss.
Research shows that when done right, remote working not only boosts overall effectiveness but is proven to drive profitability and improve employee well-being. In a digital world, remote working provides businesses with tangible, cost-saving advantages. These include reduced overheads and the ability to integrate scarce resources from any location within distributed teams.
So, it’s essential to know whether your teams are operating effectively as they work remotely.
REMOTE WORKING TEAM MATURITY ASSESSMENT
It’s not as simple as being remote-ready or not. There’s a chance your team is not as effective remotely as it should be. Companies go through various stages en route to effective remote working. Our ten-minute self-assessment measures at what stage your team is.
Take the assessment to gain:
– A snapshot of your team’s remote capabilities
– A benchmark for your team’s remote working capability
– Highlighted areas at risk
Remote Working Maturity Stages
How well is your team working remotely? Are they effectively using their time, connected and motivated?

WHY YOU NEED TO MEASURE YOUR TEAM’S REMOTE WORKING STAGE
We find that managers rate their team’s remote working performance higher than they should. This is often because they have a mindset that simply coping with the situation is good enough, evaluating their teams based on survival. Without being exposed to the full potential, leaders cannot push their teams forward to a better working environment.
BEHAVIOUR CREATES EFFECTIVENESS, NOT THE TOOLS
While having the right tools and policies in place indicates your company’s readiness to enable remote working, the way teams use that technology is what creates effectiveness.
