Remote Working and Pandemic Preparedness

Are you prepared for 100% of your employees to become remote workers? COVID-19 is circling the globe and there is much doom and gloom in the media. Many organizations have done a great job of preparing themselves for remote working, but even more haven’t. With more than 50% of companies without any flexible work policy or operational infrastructure, there will be significant scrambling over the coming weeks and months. There is opportunity as well – with necessity being the mother of invention.

  • LARGEST FLEXIBLE WORKING PILOT EVER – Remote working will expose many more companies to the opportunities of flexible working, but it will also highlight those that have not prepared. Are people trained? Do they have the necessary technology and collaboration tools? Can everyone successfully access systems remotely – at the same time?
  • INNOVATION – Heightened remote working will also spotlight your great managers and innovative team members and increase everyone’s comfort and skills with mobile technology; on the flip side, it will also expose weak management and those who are inexperienced or untrained in managing distributed teams.
  • EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE – The leaders of the organization will be gauged by their EQ (Emotional Intelligence): Can you recognize your emotion as it happens?; What are your standards of honesty and integrity?; Will you remain optimistic despite obstacles?; Do you understand the feelings, fears, needs and wants of others, and is your communication style authentic and proactive?
  • HYPER FOCUS ON STRATEGY – Strategic thinkers will be necessary as every part of our daily life will be affected. How will you continue to deliver on your strategy when the markets are down, manufacturing is stalled, travel is banned, and fear is driving hoarding of critical supplies? The strategic thinkers will already be planning how to drive their business forward and will sustain this momentum when COVID-19 has run its course.

During times of change, leaders typically focus on what’s happening with the business, but your employees will be focusing on what’s happening to them.

Agile Work Evolutions Inc. (AWE) is North America’s only workplace transformation firm that has developed a services-enabled software (SeS) to understand—with accurate employee profile data and comprehensive reporting—how and where employees are working today, how and where they want to work, and how much easier it is to create and manage an agile workforce than ever before.


What Is Workplace Transformation?

Workplace transformation allows us to reimagine how we work. It’s about empowering people with more choices and enabling organizations with agile environments so that both employees and businesses can thrive every day.

As North America’s leading workplace transformation firm, Agile Work Evolutions Inc. (AWE) designs, builds and implements the most innovative, people-centric workplace strategies—from assessment and change management to integration, alignment and training. AWE does it all.


Decades of Agile Work Expertise

AWE has a scalable, security-cleared team of business transformation, workplace strategy, change management and other executive-level experts. We have extensive experience setting up agile work environments, with a strong emphasis on flex work and mobility, for federally regulated industries and large-scale employers. In addition to AWEsum, a services-enabled software, AWE’s methodology is tested-and-true no matter the scale and complexity of the project.


Our Services

The future is now. The best workplace strategies will help you retain and attract top talent as you transition toward a more agile work environment. Leverage AWEsum, a services-enabled software, and our AWE workplace strategy team to achieve a workplace transformation that enables greater productivity, performance, engagement, and triple bottom line results (people, planet, profit).


At AWE, we know that innovation and technology go hand in hand with workplace transformation. That’s why we developed a secure services-enabled software (SeS) to provide accurate, relevant and timely workforce data to better inform workplace transformation strategies—because we know that every client is unique and complex. Experience our interactive, user-friendly dashboard to learn exactly what employees use, need and want. Review the impact assessment and planning scenarios to uncover savings. Generate triple bottom line reports (people, planet, profit).


In addition to AWEsum, a services-enabled software, AWE specializes in workforce and workplace assessments that are used to fully inform strategies for workforce agility, organizational and operational readiness and impacts, and project prioritization. In aggregate, the assessments drive the critical process and provide the necessary inputs to design an agile work environment that you and your employees will thrive in.


Change management isn’t an event. It’s a process. If you plan to lead your employees into a climate of disruption—whether it’s a workspace makeover or a workplace cultural shift—you’re going to need more than a company-wide announcement. How can you enable and engage employees to prepare for change without triggering backlash, resentment and rifts between groups? Proactive change management requires careful planning, the right timing, the ability and capacity to listen, and communication that resonates with employees.


Although AWE is most often asked to participate as a strategic advisor—ideally throughout the lifetime of a workplace transformation project—there are occasions when actual hands-on project management support is required during implementation. We have the expertise on our team to offer hands-on project leadership no matter the size and complexity of the project.


AWE believes in equipping leaders with the necessary training, tools and knowledge to be successful in managing workplace transformation. Our expertly facilitated training sessions include a focus on change management, outcome-based performance, collaboration and teamwork, process innovation and technology, and more. For non-supervisors, our experts provide training on “how to be a successful distributed worker.” This includes work protocols and best practices for staying engaged and productive.
