A Quick Start Guide for Remote Work

April 7, 2020

Remote work has become a mandate rather than an option. We’ve put together a guide with quick-start checklists to help you transition operations from a physical office to a fully remote work model.

Insurance business and IT leaders are faced with few choices about whether to adopt remote work and sometimes shockingly little time to adapt.

Many state governments are demanding that insurance companies do what once would have been unthinkable–move to a remote workforce literally overnight. In most areas where remote work has not yet been mandated by the state, government, and health authorities still strongly encourage businesses to adopt remote work policies wherever possible.

Although a shift to a remote workforce is not a simple change, you can fast-forward many of the steps to maintain business continuity in a crisis. Once the crisis is over, you can use this experience to build a sustainable long-term strategy to leverage remote work for your own organization.

We’ve put together a guide with quick-start checklists to help you transition operations from a physical office to a fully remote (and sustainable) work model–fast!
