Working From Home (RWQ)

The work from home assessment highlights personal and environmental factors that are seen as important in the adaption to remote workplaces where the boundaries between working and living environment are not as easily managed.

What does the Remote Working Assessment tell us?

  • The Remote Working Questionnaire, or RWQ aims to highlight personal and environmental factors that are important in the adaptation to ‘working from home’ where the boundaries between work and living environment are not as easily managed.

    Based on the development research for this assessment, twelve factors have been identified. These factors may vary in terms of importance for different remote working environments. It is therefore important that company and situation specific benchmarks are created to ensure that the individual qualities of each environment are accurately captured and reflected on the RWQ analysis and report.

Work-life balance is becoming increasingly important in organisations today. The challenge is more complicated when one is required to live and work in the same environment and even more so when that environment is a forced situation. This is relevant to most companies and industries but more so where ‘keeping a distance’ with specific operations is unavoidable. A key requirement of these environments is for employees to be comfortable to live and work in the same environment. Work-life balance and its boundaries are not so easily maintained in these scenarios.

The Key Function of RWQ Assessments

The RWQ consists of 60 questions and takes between 10-15 minutes to complete. Once an individual has completed the questionnaire a personalised RWQ report is generated. This report identifies which factors the individual deems important. The report then identifies a natural living-working profile for the individual. Individuals are provided with an explanation of the realities of a living-working environment. The report suggests basic coping strategies to ensure that the adjustment into a living-working environment is as seamless as possible.
