SHL's groundbreaking new questionnaire provides insights into remote-work skills, allowing individuals to showcase their ability to flourish in the new world of remote working
MINNEAPOLIS, April 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SHL, the market leader in talent solutions, announced yesterday the release of a free version of the new RemoteWorkQ for individuals seeking to discover their personal strengths, areas for development and need for support in a remote working environment.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of employees are now working from remote locations, while others have been furloughed or lost their jobs. Furthermore, nearly 74% of organizations intend to continue a remote work model even after COVID-19 restrictions subside.
The RemoteWorkQ, created by SHL and based on decades of research, data, and scientific expertise, is rooted in eight specific competencies necessary for individuals to excel in a remote working environment – with an emphasis on maintaining productivity, healthy workplace relationships, and overall well-being.
Individuals who complete the short 10-minute RemoteWorkQ receive a personalized report that outlines their remote working strengths, areas for development, and need for support – all with the scientific credibility that only SHL can provide. The report also includes development tips for increasing success as a remote employee.
"There are millions of people in the world adjusting to a new way of working, as well as others who are looking for a competitive edge back into the workforce," said Andy Bradshaw, SHL CEO. "We have created a free version of the RemoteWorkQ specifically for these individuals so they can discover the unique value they add to this new world of working. Life will go on after COVID-19 and the RemoteWorkQ will play a key role in ensuring individuals are prepared to thrive."
The RemoteWorkQ is also available as an enterprise offering through subscription on SHL's TalentCentral; it includes robust reporting and analysis for organizations to understand their strengths and areas for development at scale.
