Ann-Marie Purcell Q & A

  • At first it was a challenging adjustment both working from home full time and getting your head around the pandamic and the implications for our families and the community in general.  However I have really settled into working form home and find it so conducive to a good work life balance.  We have a “rule” that we put video on whenever we have a call or catch up, and that keep the engagement real with both colleagues and clients.
  • As a company we have responded exceptionally well to the crisis.  Within a few hours of the announcement here in Ireland we were all ready to work from home.  We have daily meetings and the company has introduced some great initiatives such as mediation, yoga, coffee breaks and the occasional cocktail hour (after work of course!) which really helps the team spirit and replaces those “water cooler” chats.
  • We have been very active in the industry supporting our clients, specifically our ask the expert campaign and our newsletter have been a great source of help to companies.  We have also done a huge amount of work on Virtual audits to help our clients embrace this new way of working.  Specifically there are some great articles and webinars which have been very useful .

  • I think working from home has become the new norm – which could be a positive we take out of this.  Its good for work life balance and for the environment as there is less traffic on the road and less stress on public transport.  I think most companies are seeing that productivity has increased so it’s a win win situation.

  • I just wanted to relay our sincere thanks to you and the team for two really excellent days training. It was well organized and structured to cover regulatory expectations, GMP principle and routine work challenges of industry. The presenters and moderator were highly skilled in this area to accommodate any queries raised during the training session and were well able to keep the team engaged even in remote/virtual training session. The design of training slides was impressive and the use of technology to make virtual training was remarkable.
