Contacting others

With most staff now working at least somewhat remotely, it’s not going to be easy to stop by someone’s office to ask a quick question or discuss a project. And picking up the phone is not going to help much either. Some things to consider as we adapt to this new way of working:

  • even when we were working in the office, we often resorted to email or phone to reach colleagues
  • check the staff calendar to see if someone is working remotely – or is away from their desk
  • get used to waiting a bit longer for a response
  • use gchat rather than email for quick questions
