Welcome to this talk on
business continuity and
the use of remote work during COVID-19,
and the current pandemic.
This is a case study recorded in April
2020, and my name is Rowena Hennigan.
Let's look at the contents or structure
of the talk, I'll do an introduction and
introduce the context of
the current COVID-19 pandemic,
I'll look at the business approach
of business continuity, and
how it impacts onto operations.
I'll look at an introduction to remote
work and teleworking as a practice, and
then how it fits into an overall business
continuity approach on operations.
I'll look at what's been happening in
terms of remote work during COVID-19,
how organisations have reacted and
global reactions during the pandemic.
I'll talk about best practice within
the area of remote working and
how to mitigate current
risks within COVID-19.
I'll look at the opportunity for
improvement out of the current situation,
and we'll have a conclusion.
My name is Rowena Hennigan,
I'm a remote work skills lecturer with
TU Dublin in Ireland, and
I'm completely remotely based, so
I deliver virtually on various e-learning
modules, and online classes, and
I have been based fully remotely for
the last three years in Spain.
I work on various different projects and
I've often never met my co-workers,
which is something a lot of
remote workers are used to.
I co-founded a 'Future of
Work Skills' module at TU Dublin,
which has a heavy emphasis on remote work.
I've also been a series editor
with Henry Stewart Talks before,
on the Online Learning for
Business Education series.
I'm a remote consultant as well,
focusing on remote work skills, and
personally I've been a remote
worker on and off since 2007.
