Remote Work Environment & Balance


COVID-19 forced an unprecedented shift of the global workforce from their offices to remote work environments. IACCM research indicates that as the transition occurred, an overwhelming majority of our members were properly equipped to get their jobs done at home. But the physical set-up was the tip of the iceberg. TASK's focus on Remote Work Environment & Balance now digs deeper to consider the broader issues that impact personal balance and professional commercial success from your home.

We have all heard that in a flight emergency, you must ensure your oxygen mask is on before you can make sure everybody else is safe. In these times, how do you best ensure that your needs are met in your new work environments? And then how do you best balance to ensure that the needs of your family, your team, colleagues, stakeholders, customers and suppliers are fulfilled. IACCM resources are available to reach your objectives in the "new normal".

To achieve success, it’s imperative that you are supported. You’re a virtual contract and commercial manager now AND you need to upskill to have the competency to be able to work effectively in the “new normal”. Read more.

Forget balanced contracts, what about balanced me?

“It feels like there is no escape”.

This impassioned plea came from one of my regular contacts, struggling to balance the demands of managing global contracts with the duties of childcare, home schooling and a partner feeling irritated by lockdown. “He tries to help, but just makes all of us more stressed and annoyed”. Reminding her that at least she had no pets to manage failed to cheer her up!
