COVID-19: Quick-Start Guide to Remote Working

Download Our Quick-Start Guide to Remote Working

Businesses globally have been plunged into uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If your business is now tasked with rolling out a remote working policy as part of a Business Continuity Plan, the Version 1 Quick-Start Guide to Remote Working is designed to arm you with practical tips and key considerations related to managing a remote workforce.

Access advice based on our experience of collaborating virtually across many geographical locations from several of our business departments including Internal IT, Security, HR, Employee Engagement, Software Development and more.

We are here to help throughout the COVID-19 crisis

While we don’t want to give the impression that rolling out a remote working policy is a walk in the park, there is no need to panic as long as you can arrange a taskforce to support your business in addressing some of the top considerations outlined in this guide.

Kickstart your organisation with the most critical business continuity elements such as technology enablement, security and equipment, and the rest of the list will be much easier with some of the pressure eased.

As you will see in this guide, we included two checklists – one to remind yourself of the top business continuity areas to be aware of with a remote workforce, and one to remind you to take care of yourself personally, because you can’t do your best working remotely if you aren’t looking after yourself too.

Best wishes,

The Version 1 Team
