PSI Webinar: Chosen or Forced - How to manage working from home.
Date: Tuesday 28th April 2020
Time: 14:00 - 14:45
Speaker: Jackie Moynihan (Cytel)
Benefit of attending: 'Experience-sharing and guidance on working from home aspects'
Given the current situation, pretty much everyone is working remotely from home. Some people are used to working remotely either on a regular or full-time basis this, whilst for many this is a new experience.
Remote working, whether chosen or forced, has pros and cons for the company, manager and the statistician. Based on over 15 years’ experience working from home as a contractor and more recently as a manager of home-based statisticians and programmers, this Webinar will give some guidance for both managers and individuals. Some technical advice will be covered but the focus will be on how to recruit and manage remote statisticians as well as some strategies for the day-to-day challenges of being home-based.
This webinar is aimed both at people who are used to working from home as well as at those are being asked to work from home for the first time. Not everyone will have an ideal home-working scenario and may also be juggling family needs at the same time. Areas where we need to adapt from the ideal will be discussed.
