  My organization was well prepared for transitioning to digital formats for communication.              
  My organization was heavily dependent on digital formats for communication prior to the COVID-19 situation.              
  We will continue to use many of these digital communication tools going forward, regardless of our ability to meet and go "back to normal."              
  Digital communication has been the "saving grace" of our organization during this time.              
  My organization had little to no need of digital communications during the quarantine.              
  When working with a remote team, my contributions were valued as much as when working in person.              
  Increased use of digital communications away from my workplace caused physical problems (back pain, headaches, etc.).              
  I felt safer during the COVID-19 situation because of WFH.              
You're about half-way done!

  I would say my organization had a strong digital presence prior to the COVID-19 restrictions.              
  We rely heavily on digital platforms for communicating with our external audiences              
  The digital communication platforms we've used have exceeded my expectations of what I thought we would be able to do.              
  We have significantly increased our use of digital communication tools.              
  I was able to give and/or receive needed feedback to accomplish goals or objectives.              
  Team leaders regularly communicated expectations.              
  I felt supported by co-workers and colleagues.              
  WFH posed cyber security risks, compared to working in the office.              
  After working from home (WFH) during the COVID-19 situation,
 
  Consider the following digital tools, and then indicate which best describes your organization's use of this tool:
       
  Google Meet      
  Zoom      
  Microsoft Teams      
  Skype      
  Facebook      
  Instagram      
  Twitter      
  Facetime      
  Organization Specific Platform      
  Typically, digital communication is broken into two broad categories- Platforms that are  "real time" and those that are not.  Think for a moment about your organization, and give your best estimate at what you think is the percent of your digital communications that are "Real Time" such as Skype or Zoom versus those that are not such as a message board or email.
