Critical Collaboration
Published: 17 March 2020

We are in unprecedented times. Social distancing and self-isolation are driving changes into our workplaces and homes. With it comes new dynamics of work between colleagues, customers and clients. Thankfully, the world of work is embracing the need to change and adapting rapidly. Business away from the ‘formal’ workplace will carry on.

Our own business has shifted to a flexible working model, minimising contact to all but the most essential activities. At the heart of this new norm is the adoption of new ways of working that are reliant upon resilient technology services. My own diary has shifted to a schedule rich in Zoom, Skype and FaceTime meetings. Pleasingly all clients and candidates who are able to do so  seem to be rapidly adopting to the constraints of social distancing, and our clients are embarking upon careful reviews of their hiring process to the advantage of both the organisation and the candidate.

No doubt there will be increased challenges ahead. New working patterns and practices will need time to bed in and find a successful rhythm. The link below is an extremely useful and practical guide for remote working. It’s a free-to-use, crowdsourced document put together by a group of CxO's from the tech community, instigated by Chris Weston.

The beauty of this resource is its crowdsourced nature – collaboration outside of the walls of any given firm or organisation. Do share. Do contribute.
