               Supporting the homeworkers  Working from home. Whether you and your teams had actually done this prior to COVID-19 or not, it’s likely you’ll be VERY familiar with it now! It has been forced upon most and for those who are not used to it, it can be a big adjustment with lots of new dynamics to adjust to. As with any change it needs to be managed correctly - and creatively, and our people must be supported along the way. Agile and remote working is our specialist area. Our team are often at opposite ends of the country and every now and then, even opposite hemispheres; check out our tips for successfully working from home (https://www. information-survey/). Everyone’s immediate concern is the health of themselves, their friends and their families. Naturally, as we are all either business owners or employees; our next concern is continued employment, sales, productivity and success, all whilst doing this in an entirely new work setting! To fully understand how agile teams are surviving and thriving through managing in our ‘new- normal’, many organisations are engaging with their workforce by leveraging our Home & Remote Working Survey.
