Tell us about your remote working experience
Telework-JCU

We need your help to analyse the impacts of remote working during a crisis, and identify potential areas of innovation.

Would you be willing to take 10 or 15 minutes to complete a survey about remote working (also known as teleworking)?

Telework has become the daily reality for many workers who have to adapt to the health and safety measures under the current coronavirus pandemic. We are interested in bringing a new perspective to teleworking, to analyse its impacts amid the current crisis and to learn from it when all of this is over.

Specifically, the research project involves:

  1. Analysing the practice of teleworking
  2. Assessing its ability to meet the changing needs of workplaces in times of crisis
  3. Validating the possibilities for innovation that teleworking generates
  4. Determining the ability of individuals to adapt to a major upheaval in their way of working

Your responses can help us uncover how employees adapt to new ways of working and to digital tools, as well as identify the potential for innovation in ways of working for the future. A positive reinterpretation of your telework experience for the future will likely emerge from this study.

For an international reach, this study is being conducted in the United States, Canada, France, Australia, and Singapore. Professor Eddy Ng – Visiting Professor of Organisational Behaviour at James Cook University, and the James and Elizabeth Freeman Professor at Bucknell University – is collaborating with a team of researchers across these different parts of the world to make this possible.

The results of the survey will be shared on the websites of James Cook University, Bucknell University, Université de Montréal, TBS Business School, Université Laval, and Macquarie University.

So please take a few minutes to share with us your experience by filling out the survey: https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/telcov_usa
