Remote working guide


Web page

As the coronavirus lockdown is lifted, many of us are returning to the workplace. However, lots of organisations are now thinking about how home working could be offered to staff going forwards, as a way of keeping staff safe and to prevent a second wave. Some organisations are allowing staff to stay home for longer, until everyone feels comfortable and safe to return. If your role is affected by this, you might be feeling concerned about the impact this might have on your productivity and wellbeing.

This guide from Our NHS People explains some of the challenges of working from home, and explores how you can manage these.

There are five parts to the guide:

  • Why prolonged remote working takes some adjustment,
  • Tips for everyone when getting started with remote working,
  • Tips for teams,
  • Tips for team leaders,
  • Using technology to stay connected.

While the guide was originally written for NHS staff, it contains information that could be useful for anyone experiencing home working.
