Remote Working

Overview

Tech London Advocates is a vibrant network of more than 9,000 tech leaders, entrepreneurs and experts worldwide. Tech London Advocates is part of Global Tech Advocates, founded by Russ Shaw.

Although our current enforced remote working is temporary, employees and employers now expect flexible home and remote working to be our new normal. In fact, trade with global partners post-Brexit will demand a workforce that is both flexible and accustomed to remote operations.

Tech London Advocates Remote Working group (TLA RW) has been launched to tackle issues, promote discussion and be a source of information on remote, flexible and home working as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted and we move into a post-Brexit world.

How can we help?

Organisations, large and small, are all looking for similar guidance on effectively organising, leading and preparing their new remote, flexible and ‘hybrid’ teams – a mix of office-based, home-based and remote workers – as we move towards post-Brexit and the global marketplace.

TLA RW exists to address the challenges of embedding an effective flexible working culture that works for all, not limited to:

  • Maintaining production targets
  • Governance implications
  • Soft skills and technology upskilling
  • Mental health support.

Our Purpose

To make a positive difference to home and work life as we move into a post-Covid and post-Brexit world.

Our aspiration is to partner with employees, leaders and owners of all types of organisations, to pool expertise and serve as a hub to develop and share remote and flexible working good practice and insights accessible to all.

Our Values

Making a difference | Collaboration | Balance | Curiosity | Innovation
