I am so lucky to have a team that is willing to try just about anything. If we say we can work anytime anywhere, we want to put our money where our mouth is!
We have now successfully tested Pheonix! Everything worked! The technology didn't fail, Jenn's productivity (which is normally off the chart) became even better, if that is possible. The team still had their meetings, Jenn still provided coaching and development moments virtually, and I as her leader had absolutely no issues. Projects were completed on time, if not early, we were always able to connect when we needed to, and our coaching relationship worked fine from afar as well.

In November 2011, we administered a survey to the Workplace 2.0 pilot members before they started actively participating in the program. The pilot members provided very valuable information on their current work environment. After the pilot period is complete, these same participants will be asked to complete a post-pilot survey that will be used to measure, improve, and scale the program across the company. A total of 34 ATB associates and managers were asked to participate, and with a 100% response rate, here are a few interesting findings:
- Nearly all ATB respondents (85%) report working from home some of the time already. Of those that do currently work from home, the average is 18 hours a week. The majority of that time is during normal business hours.
- The average amount of time respondents take to commute one-way is 31.5 minutes, which equates to 263 hours and approximately $3,318 in a year.
- The majority (between 88 and 97%) of respondents feel they are able to easily keep in touch with contacts, maintain relationships, collaborate with colleagues, and receive timely assisstance when they need it.
