Personalised working from home report

20th April 2020

The times we are living in are – to quote every politician and news anchor on our televisions – unprecedented.
One of the biggest changes to the everyday life of the general public is the simple task of staying at home, which, if you too have been self-isolating, isn’t all that simple in practice.

There’s no more eating out at restaurants, visiting friends, stopping for a chat with a stranger in the park, and, perhaps most challenging, people are unable to commute to their places of work.

Naturally, this means that work, as well as everything else in day-to-day life, has been shifted to the comfort of own homes. That might sound like a dream come true to some, a total nightmare to others.
Regardless of your standpoint, it’s hard to argue that the skill of being able to crack down and focus while at home is a vital one – but not everyone finds focusing in a comfortable environment simple.

Everybody’s different

We believe our personality has a huge influence on who you are personally and professionally.

Personality plays an essential role in explaining some of the variations in work performance – some people are well organised, some are carefree, some people are shy and some are outgoing etc, etc. It’s these that ultimately form our strengths and our weakness – they’re what make us who we are.
So what happens when we find ourselves working from home in unusual circumstances? How do we cope and how can we thrive?

Naturally, different individuals will have different responses and where some may thrive wrapped up in their duvet as they create reports, others may struggle to stay focused as their eyes and drawn to the more exciting things in the room (see: literally anything else within view).
So, when it comes to creating a series of instructions or tips for working at home, it’s not a one-size-fits-all kind of job, it should be personal.

Personal remote working report

A conclusion of “it’s individual and you’re on your own” would be a pretty lame end to an article, and so we’ve done something about it and created a Personal Remote Working Tips Report to help guide you through these tricky times.

The report is divided into six behavioural areas and, within each, you will find a brief description of your preferred approach in this area. This is to help you to build self-awareness of your preferred working styles – i.e the way that you work your best.

You will also find some personalised remote working tips provided to help you manage to work remotely more effectively, meaning you can be more productive and better handle the challenges of working remotely.

The report is powered by Big 5 Assessments, an online Psychometric Assessment company visit to find out more.
