COVID-19 has brought uncertainty and tragedy across the globe and has forced the economy to undergo a massive shift in the way we work. As somewhere around half of all workers take part in this trial of remote work, however, in the chaos, there are also bright spots for the future of how we work. Virtual work arrangements appeal to both corporations and employees based on the economics and the personal flexibility and autonomy they offer. Flexible work has enabled corporations to hire and retain employees who value the ability to respond to family demands and desire more control over the time, place and mode of their work.
By reducing the number of onsite employees, corporations are realizing higher productivity and savings on real estate costs.
However, Virtual employees and managers alike are becoming increasingly aware of the challenges associated with virtual work as they relate to internal communications, social interaction, and employee satisfaction and commitment. For companies, according to MIT Sloan, employee productivity rates have increased significantly over the past year. It is because of cost savings and increased productivity within companies that remote work has been on the rise over the past two decades. It is important to set your employees up for success at the beginning of their remote work transitions. With all of the technology available to companies for their security and success of their employees, employers are shifting their workforce at higher rates than ever, and will likely continue doing so after COVID-19.
