01 Apr Habital® Remote is monitoring the health and satisfaction of people working from home during the Covid-19 crisis
We will use Habital® Remote to map the behaviour and satisfaction of employees in an organisation who are forced to work from home due to the Corona crisis.
Habital® Remote is a special edition of our existing solution Habital®. Questions regarding the quality of the workspace at home and health of the employee have been added to Habital® Remote.
How does Habital® Remote work?
Habital® Remote contains two parts. The first part is an online survey with over 20 short questions. Registration is possible at www.measuremen.io/habitalremote. The answers to these questions give insights into the type of employee – age, gender, personality traits – and the preferences for workspace and the types of activities they do on a daily basis. A profile is then created based on the answers to these questions. Answering these questions will take just five minutes.
For the second part, the employee is being asked to download the Habital® smartphone app or to use the browser-based interface to register to the research group. Every research group has its own, unique access code, belonging to his/her organisation. The employee will then receive a notification twice a day at a random time to answer a few short questions like: Are you working from home or on leave/sick. Which activity are you doing at this moment? How well are you able to do this activity? You will also be asked what can be improved physically (light, sound, indoor climate, etc.), about digital workplace support (internet, access to specific software applications, support by VC, etc.) and what hinders you from doing your work optimally (do you have physical or mental health complaints?). It will only take a few seconds each time to answer these questions, which is of minimal distraction to the employee.
What does Habital® Remote yield?
Habital® Remote gives insights to the employee on their own answers and how the answers relate to other employees. It also creates awareness that leads to the initial optimisation of the working environment.
Habital® Remote gives the organisation access to dashboards in a BI platform (the Measuremen Portal), which shows how the organisation experiences working from home and how that experience develops over time. In addition, the questions about facilities and health will provide insight into possible FM and HR hindrance, so they can be resolved. They can also observe group-specific trends so that they can offer tailor-made solutions, for example for certain generations and/or employee profiles.
In an office environment, a representative target group is sufficient for a representative data set, so that an organisation can improve its workplace strategy with Habital®. Habital® Remote, on the other hand, is about improving the homework strategy, including the associated facilities and creating extra involvement with employees.
Habital® Remote is distinctive from other survey tools because it does not retrieve data once, but checks in twice a day for a longer period of time. This makes Habital® Remote not a one-off questionnaire, but a questionnaire with sampling, which is scientifically proven to provide more valid results with deeper insights.
It gives HR and FM the possibility to make daily adjustments via the dashboard because new data is available twice a day. Because the history is also available, they can also identify trends.
Habital® Remote also offers the possibility to compare yourself as an organisation with peers, both nationally and internationally. Furthermore, international organisations can compare establishments in different countries. For this reason, Habital® Remote is available in all languages and can be executed simultaneously across all time zones.
What does it cost?
Habital® Remote is available in a free version where every participant gets access to the smartphone app and online edition. As a participant, you will be made aware of your own behaviour and you will gain insights from the rest of the online community of homeworkers participating in the global research initiative. Companies can also apply this solution in their own organisation from € 2,000.00. This gives them access to the Habital® Remote dashboards with unique insights into the health and satisfaction of their home workers over a longer period of time.
