Completely transforming the way you work is not an easy process and usually requires an extra push. What has to happen to make remote working one of the options for working in your organization?
There must be a paradigm change!
One of the key elements of change is the catalyst. A factor that makes it necessary to introduce change with a certain urgency, reason and timing. Once we have enabled remote working, how we, as a company, know that the change has been successful?
Success can be measured by the impact of the change on the employees’ performance. A successful change would indicate a boost of performance due to the convenience provided by remote work. Employees can save time and budget by eliminating the need to commute and strike a better work -life balance. Whereas the business can continue even in emergency situations such as a pandemic outbreak or political states of emergency.
The catalyst for change can be a need generated internally as well as an external factor. An event that makes it impossible to perform tasks in the current way. It may concern one employee, a group, a team as well as the whole company.
In short, the conditions for change include:
– The Why: Change catalyst – The reasons behind the change.
– The What: Description of change – introduction of remote working
– The When: Urgency – real deadline or current reason or both.
Now that you have answered the What, why and When, you can move on to the How.
