Our working from home self-assessment asks all participants to complete an online questionnaire, answering nearly 70 questions, detailing their working from home environment, equipment and any issues they face while working from home.

Self-Assessment Report

A report is provided to employers showing all staff who completed the self-assessment. You will be able to see who needs equipment and who doesn’t, who has a positive and productive working from home environment and who may not.

The self-assessments will influence your working from home policies and they will help you make decisions around who may need to return to the office and who doesn’t. Contact us to discuss this option.
