Remote/Home Working Behavioural Assessments
During these challenging and difficult times, the requirement to work from home can generate a range of significant challenges for both employees and employers. An organisation cannot assume that having the right technology and processes in place will lead to automatic success. In most cases, our working life has been synonymous with the structure of travelling from home to a building or place of work. This structure provides an environment of normality, security and support, and for most people a clear divide between work and home life. So why is it so difficult for many people to make this transition to working from home?
The SalesMatch behavioural assessment separates your team into the main working character groups. It then indentifies how well they are likely to adjust to remote/home working and provides suggestion on how best to manage this.
There are four main behavioural group
Primary character trait is “Dominance”This group will tend to be confident and driven. They will also be quite self-motivated, self-sufficient, and likely to enjoy being more autonomous. This group is likely to transfer smoothly to homeworking.
Primary character trait is “Influence”
Communication and interaction are at the core of this group. They will tend to suffer loneliness very quickly and could become depressed if not kept motivated. Homeworking could become challenging and demotivating after a relatively short period of time.
Primary character trait is “Steadiness (Pace)”
This group is good at dealing with repetitive tasks but could quickly become stressed and anxious at being away from a supportive and secure office environment.
Primary character trait is “Compliance (attention to detail)”
Providing the transfer is structured, thought-out and staff have a specific home office area in which to work undisturbed, the transition to homeworking for this group should not present too many problems.
