What Have You Learned This Week?

Another week is drawing to a close, and some of us are beginning to feel like maybe we're getting our sea legs. If you're not there yet, that's OK - give yourself grace as we all move together into an unprecedented (at least in modern times) experience.

Here's a recap of some of the information Movability has shared this week around remote work.

1. Maintaining mental health while teleworking: Mental and emotional health is an important part of productivity, and managers should consider ways to support employees who are working remotely, whether it's a temporary arrangement or a longer-term option. Included here are some suggestions that employers can impart to employees.

2. Working with children at home: Many of your employees have an entirely new set of responsibilities at home: a school-age child (or baby, or preschooler) who is also adjusting to a new, quarantined world.

3. Setting up a remote workspace: Whether it's for a few more weeks or months, it behooves employers to develop ideas and guidelines around a workspace that supports employee health and productivity.

4. Telework Triage webinar: Movability member Point B gave a presentation on what you need to address both immediately and longer-term to ensure your transition to remote work doesn't mean lost productivity.
