Executive Interview : Working From Home - Exclusive Interview With Sue Coe from Queensland Urban Utilities

How easy is it to set up a workspace/ home office?
Very easy

Do you feel people working from home work harder, about the same or less than those working in an office environment
All of the above - some describe it as harder due to the social aspect and too many distractions and others love it.

What advice would you give anyone working from home for the first time and how to adapt?
Don't get distracted, kept focussed, act like you would at work, keep connected to your team mates via skype, email, chat, voice

Does working from home affect your quality of life? (i.e. less travel time etc = more leisure time)
Yes - improves

How does working from home affect your home life? (for example if you have children, partner etc)
Yes - less travel time etc has a positive impact

Do you feel like a proper employee? i.e. you are at work when working from home?
Of course

When you work in an office and you leave you disconnect from work - literally. If you work at home how easy is it to dis-connect from work?

How do you stay motivated when working from home?
Focussed on tasks, set small targets, connect with team members

How often does your company check in with you?
They don't check in on me, they are connecting with me.

Autonomy and trust

How easy has it been to make the transition and what lessons did you learn along the way?
Very easy - we set up our contact centre to work like this one day - and it is coming true.

2021 Buyers Guide Employee Engagement Solutions

Typical Problem!

In-house surveys can be time consuming, cumbersome at best and many staff often don't provide valid feedback as they fear ‘being too honest' with their employer for fear of retribution.

Even some 3rd party ‘managed' surveys can be challenging, costly and then there is no benchmark or significant value other than ‘managed by a 3rd party' approach, which leads to the problem of validity of data, security and integrity plus costs and time required by you.

The Solution!

TopPlace2Work is an easy to use program that allows you to gather valuable data on employee morale and engagement.
