While most of our associates can work remotely, some jobs are better suited to it than others. This is in particular the case for our sales personnel. One of our exports sales staff feels that, since they do not have a permanent office anyway, this new way of working has been reasonably easy to adapt to: "I'm used to working in airport lounges and hotel rooms anyway when I'm on work trips abroad."
Although not as used as our sales staff to remote working from anywhere in the world, the company lawyer we talked to is also a fan of remote working: "I've found it easy because I'm used to doing it with the Volvo Group. Arquus likes us to have this flexibility, so I've got into the habit of doing it." The communications team feels the same: "These days everything's paperless anyway and with invoices or orders all on my computer, remote working isn't a problem."
Sometimes staff members are even one step ahead when it comes to any problems they might encounter in their daily lives: "I'm used to this, I regularly check all my tools are working properly, we've even had a satellite dish fitted on our roof to make sure the Internet connection is top notch."
