Abstract

The purpose of this article is to provide suggestions for the implementation of remote working under enforced lockdown as experienced in many countries facing the consequences of the covid-19 virus. The author addresses the singularities and challenges of implementing remote working as a consequence of lockdown. Several measures for organisations are proposed, like the technological implementation of the technology and the importance of maintaining a routine to provide continuity, but also the need to be flexible towards the employees, the need to keep and adapt quality standards and to trust the motivation of the employees to do a good job. From an employee perspective, there is the need to create a personal routine, to set rules and have a working space, to use the right tools to communicate with colleagues and show up for online meetings, remaining in a positive frame of mind.
