WSP has been playing its part in flattening the COVID-19 curve, having transitioned to remote based working in early March.
From a technological perspective, things have been reasonably straightforward. With an existing VPN connection and most employees already using laptops, the transition has been relatively seamless. In addition to the IT department, the Learning and Development team have played an important role in ensuring all employees have access to information and resources to continue working safely and efficiently from home.
On a more personal note, I have noticed both benefits and challenges due to the change in my office location. While I have enjoyed the flexibility associated with WFH, I have noticed without my commute the lines between work and home life have become a little blurry. To maintain the important separation between time devoted to work and time devoted to me I have somewhat created my own “commute” before and/or after work. Lately, this has been a walk to the local café or to the beach, however with the weather lately it looks like I’ll have to start becoming a little more creative!
