At a glance – Remote working guide

Social distancing has required many of us to stay at home and work remotely. This isn’t a normal way of working for many of us in healthcare.

Doing a small amount of remote working can actually increase productivity, however working remotely for a prolonged period of time can sometimes impact our personal well-being, leading to feelings of disconnection, loneliness and impact on our sense of being able to perform at our best.

Working at home full time can also blur our boundaries between work-time and personal-time, which is important to enable us to rest and recuperate. Remember that we all adjust to change in different ways and at different speeds.

Following the tips in this guide will help you and your team to overcome this by staying connected and quickly getting the best out of remote working.
