A series of Complimentary Courses from GRC Solutions

Working effectively from home is more than just making a cup of coffee and sitting down in front of the home computer.

We all expect to be working from home for a long time, so it’s important that we get it right.

Course 1 – The Home Office Environment

Businesses have an obligation to ensure their staff are safe and healthy when working from home. They need to ensure that their staff understand the physical requirements for home-working in order to:

  • keep healthy
  • remain safe
  • feel happy and comfortable

This training, prepared by our e-learning team, will help businesses ensure their staff are as prepared as possible.

This training, prepared by our e-learning team, will help businesses ensure their staff are as prepared as possible.

COURSE 5 – STAYING PRODUCTIVE

Recent neuroscience research indicates that our brains are hardwired to be alert for new stimuli. For this reason, we get distracted multiple times per second. In this course we offer practical tips for maintaining productivity while working at home:

  • Setting routines and habits
  • Goal setting and task management
  • Self motivation and having realistic expectations
  • The importance of taking breaks and knowing when to stop

Course 6: Working from Home for Managers

Effective management of workers who have recently transitioned to working from home, or who are thinking of transitioning back to the office, requires strong processes, clear communication and solid support to keep them motivated and able to do their best work individually and with each other.

We offer a few considerations to keep in mind as you help manage your team through these changes, including:

  • Ensuring that communication works, and respecting different communication practices
  • Management styles: resisting the temptation to micromanage, giving credit, listening actively
  • Self-care and self-motivation
  • Leadership authenticity

The course has been developed by our e-learning team to help managers deal with the unfamiliar challenges that arise when managing remote teams.
