WINDSOR, Conn., Jan. 28, 2021 — LL Global, Inc., the parent company of LIMRA, LOMA, and Secure Retirement Institute® (SRI®), today announced the release of RemotePRO Employee, the first offering from the “Remote PROductivity” toolkit.
Built with industry experts and Aon plc, a leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions, the toolkit is designed to improve virtual employees’ productivity and success at an organizational level. The financial services industry-specific toolkit will determine which employees have the skills to thrive virtually, provide employees’ perspective on their virtual work environment, and help leaders recognize and improve virtual workforce management.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many employees to work remotely. Going forward, use of remote and hybrid work arrangements may expand. In order to be successful, organizations have to adapt. They need to assess their workforce to determine how they can ensure employees are most effective. RemotePRO Employee measures the critical competencies employees need to succeed in a virtual role: adaptability, autonomy, collaboration, communication, focus and trustworthiness. The tool can also be used to pinpoint potential development areas for employees working in a remote environment.
“The COVID-19 crisis surfaced an urgent need seemingly overnight — supporting and effectively managing a remote workforce,” said Kathy Reid, vice president, Talent Solutions, LIMRA. “This tool helps assess which employees would be best suited to continue working virtually on an ongoing basis.”
LL Global collaborated with Aon to use ADEPT-15, a tool that looks at preferences, workstyles and tendencies and how they will play out in a remote work environment. Using a tailored version of this assessment, RemotePRO Employee creates a great marriage between the skills that make employees successful and Aon’s metrics.
Additional components of the Remote PROductivity toolkit will be released this spring. The next component, RemotePRO Leader, will measure the competencies needed to be successful in managing a remote workforce.
Each component in the toolkit will offer a dashboard with roll-up reporting and benchmarking to determine how a company compares to peers in the industry and tracks progress over time. This high-level view provides the insights organizations need to respond and evolve in the changed work environment and build for long-term success.
