The Pitfalls of Smart Working

We’re often asked what the pitfalls of smart working are.

Regrets, we’ve had a few……but we learned very quickly from any mistakes we made in the early days of implementing smart working solutions into corporate businesses. Which means that we can share them with you.

Here are 3 pitfalls organisations can easily fall into:

The Number one Pitfall – Poor choice of options.

Running a feasibility workshop to determine what will work….. & crucially what will not work in your business – is a fundamental first step. Miss this step and trip up.

Leaders with no smart skills.

Todays Leaders are not equipped for managing people who work away from the office. Leading smart teams is a whole new ball game. If you don’t develop your Leaders – smart working will fall flat on it’s face!

Fixed Mindsets.

Those who feel that there is no replacement for 9-5, Monday to Friday, office based collaboration WILL scupper your programme. How do you shift that mindset?

What will help you to avoid the pitfalls is a unique strategy for your unique business.  One that delivers a smart workplace culture that drives growth. Do it your way. Consider your unique products, customer demands and needs, employee preferences and how workplace culture will need to adapt and progress.

Begin your smart thinking and learn how to avoid the pitfalls by joining one of our workshops. We’ll share what other organisations are doing, how they are avoiding mistakes and driving performance.

To learn more about how to avoid the pitfalls and make a real successful of smart working –  join us in Watford on 13th May or Birmingham on 17th May.

Regrets, we’ve had a few (over the last 20 years of implementation) but then again…….
