Peer Advice During COVID-19



Quest Customer Testimonial

With all of the uncertainty, yet IT needing to keep things running, what advice would you share with peers?

Stay calm and focus on things that are important to keep the business running. Have grace with employees and peers understanding that this paradigm shift isn’t easy for everyone. Stay brief. In lieu of conversation, I am now noticing an uptick in very long, overly detailed e-mails. We need to be focused on producing results, not reading.

Set up your home office similar to how you had it set up in the office. Keep your same routines and rituals as before. Take breaks, walk outside and remember to take challenges as they come and not worry too much about things you can’t control.

Cut yourselves some slack. Having to work full time remotely while having children you need to teach is a lot to ask someone. Give yourself breaks. Get up and walkabout. You’re also much more acutely focused at home, without the constant work interruptions. You are making a real difference every day, it’s just a different difference.
