For some people who run their own businesses or those who’s employers promote flexibility in the workplace, remote working may be the norm. However, for a large majority of the population this whole “working from home” situation is completely new! Whilst working from home is essential during this difficult and unprecedented time, it doesn’t come without its risks.
Unfortunately this years LegalEx event was postponed due to Corvid-19. As you may have heard, Peter Wright, the managing director of Digital Law and consultant for Anson Evaluate, was due to speak at the event alongside many other valued speakers.
Luckily for you, you don’t have to miss out completely. Not only has the event been rescheduled, but our friends over at Clio set up a mini webinar series that took part over 2 days last week. On the 2nd day of the series Peter Wright participated in a webinar focused around remote working alongside Joe Walsh, a remote working specialist from LogMeIn.
Don’t worry you if you didn’t manage to watch it live, you can view a recorded version of the webinar here:
From Monday 16 March Anson Evaluate, having taken account of UK Government advice and to protect our staff and our clients we are allowing staff to self isolate and work from home where appropriate. Our IT and communications systems allow for our normal services to be provided to our clients in full from any secure location and we have allowed staff to work from home for a period previously, most recently due to localised flooding making travel difficult for staff in autumn 2019 – we have been here before.
We are open for business and will be continuing to provide a full service to our clients via secure means including email, phone and video conferencing.
