    Better Homeworking in MedComms

    To round off a crazy year, we're running a final end of year #MedComms educational forum with Christmas quiz, mince pies and networking. We will run it as a Zoom meeting.

    The programme for this meeting has been organised by Tim Hardman of Niche Science and Technology and Steven Walker of St Gilesmedical London and Berlin.

    This event is free of charge for any members of this MedComms Networking Community, or anyone who would like to learn more about the MedComms business. Everyone's welcome.

    Background:

    The ongoing pandemic and move to homeworking has been a challenge for companies and staff. The recent MedComms survey of >750 respondents (presented 17 June 2020) suggested that while many employees welcomed the change, others struggled with isolation, lack of support and strained finances.

    Programme:

    14:00-14:50 During the first half of our educational forum we will explore the contradictions of home working and seek the experiences of a range of stakeholders.

  • Peter Llewellyn (NetworkPharma) and Steven Walker (St Gilesmedical) - Introduction
  • Tim Hardman (Niche Science and Technology): Results of the MedComms survey - findings, contradictions and questions
  • Rob Davies (Havas SO): Am I surprised with the results?
  • Rebecca Douglas (Ashfield) - Training from home: evolving the story
  • Susie Marriott - The Prime Global experience (tbc)
  • Louise Upton - The Amiculum experience (tbc)
    Break for 10 minutes

    15:00-15:50 The second part of our programme will look at how we can improve homeworking. Issues to be addressed include room ergonomics, health and safety, good mental health, finances, human resources and contracts, mutual support, maintaining company ethos and socialising on line.

  • Karina Rudzinska (Lucid) - The views of an HR specialist
  • Dr Christine Oesterling (GP Principal) - recognising and treating mental health issues
  • Christian Hambly (FreelanceGeek) - Working from home or living at work? A Geek's guide to thriving rather than just surviving
  • Iain Smith (Network for Skills) - Why I've had enough with this working from home rubbish

  • Steven Walker (St Gilesmedical) - Discussion. Do we need a 'Homeworking Charter'

    Break for 10 minutes

    The afternoon will end with a Christmas quiz and prizes, plus networking breakout rooms to chat and socialise. So you can better enjoy the break between sessions, we will send the first 50 registrants who provide a UK address to (steven.walker@stgmed.com) posh tea bags and two homemade mince pies.

    This meeting will be recorded and the videos posted at NetworkPharma.tv.

    This event is free of charge for any members of this MedComms Networking Community, or anyone who would like to learn more about the MedComms business. Everyone's welcome.
