The pandemic upended our lives in ways we did not expect. Companies have in the past permitted employees to work from home, but when COVID-19 sent office workers home for an undetermined period of time, working from home was no longer optional or somewhat private.
The arrival of vaccines brought with them optimism and an initial sense of relief. There are concerns around vaccinated vs non-vaccinated people working in proximity, reformatting the office layout for some degree of social distancing, whether to mask up and accompanying judgments on that practice, and whether anything has been done to improve building air filtration. All of these issues make bringing employees back to the office environment complicated.
But beyond the aforementioned considerations, there's an even bigger issue: office workers discovered that they did not need to be IN an office together to accomplish their work. This seismic shift in thinking has employees reconsidering their home and work lifestyles, and makes company leaders nervous about insisting that employees return to the office.
What Do We Do?
Forward thinking companies are realizing that we're not going to be able to just return to the way things were before the pandemic. Rather than resisting the shift, they're examining their options for changing the way they work.
Here are just a handful of the issues to consider.
- How well have your employees adapted?
- Have you established a network infrastructure that can support remote work indefinitely?
- Will you lose key employees if you insist they they return to the office 5 days a week?
- If you did attempt a hybrid working model, how would that function?
Remote working is officially a reasonable way of working for corporate office staff. Now it's time to decide how to proceed.
Changing the Outcome
The end result we want is for companies to be flexible and for employees to be loyal. The Remote Leadership Success program helps you achieve both. We can help you and your company redefine how you lead workers remotely, and how to sustain productivity and team dynamics for long-term success.
