Topic: Rapid Transition to Remote Work
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many people into working remotely. Many organizations did not previously have any type of remote work policy nor did they have any insight on best practices for remote work. Dr. Kristen Shockley has received a NSF Rapid Response grant to look at organizational, individual, and managerial factors that predict people’s successful transition (as indicated by performance and well-being). The goal of her research is to provide evidence-based best practices so that remote work now, and in the future, can function as smoothly as possible for everyone. Learn more about her research here.
