D2N2 has put together a series of resources to help those adapting to remote working.
Keeping in Touch
When working remotely it's normal to feel out of the loop. In order to avoid that, check-in with line managers and direct reports once a day and read all of your emails carefully. You can help this process by making your own emails to colleagues clear and concise. Finally, as tasks present themselves, always consider who else should be kept informed.
Teleconferencing can be achieved through a variety of platforms including Microsoft Teams, which is included within Office 365, and Zoom which are two of the most popular.
Sending large files
If you need to send large documents such as PowerPoint presentations, images, or video you should send them via a third party. Resources include:
- Google Drive
- Microsoft Sharepoint
Working from home can be a difficult adjustment for many used to the regular social interactions of an office. Thrive at Home is a series of resources developed to help people look after their mental health and wellbeing whilst working at home.
