Multiple choice simulation increases understanding of the issues to consider when choosing where to work and creates a shared understanding of the benefits and challenges of remote and face-to-face working.
Remote work, face-to-face work
In remote, face-to-face, and multi-location work, there are factors that threaten or support well-being and performance at work. The benefits and challenges of working in multiple locations depend on the type of organisation, business, work and tasks involved. The simulation breaks away from where the work is done and focuses on factors that give each person energy and well-being at work, regardless of where they work.
The simulation uses a multiple choice simulation approach and is lighter and faster to run than a regular simulation. In the simulation, the response options deal with personal preferences and good practices.
The exercise consists of 10 short situations.
CLAIM 2: BENEFITS OF WORKING FACE-TO-FACE
What is the main reason for me to come to work at the company’s premises?
CLAIM 3: REMOTE WORK FOR WELLBEING
For me, the best thing about working remotely is…
CLAIM 4: CHALLENGES OF REMOTE WORK
The most challenging aspect of working remotely for me is…
CLAIM 5: BALANCING REMOTE WORK AND FACE-TO-FACE WORK
For me, the ideal number of office days per week would be…
The issues raised in the simulation are based on studies (e.g. Occupational Health Institute and international peer-reviewed articles).
- Increase understanding of the issues to consider when choosing where to work
- Create a common understanding of the benefits and challenges of remote and face-to-face work
- Compare personal and team needs in organising multi-site work
- Develop the team’s work in the context of multi-site work
- Teams of 4-16 persons. Suits also ary teams and project teams.
- The simulation does not include a strengths-based assessment of colleagues, which makes it possible to play with people who know each other less well.
