Is remote working the new normal?
Team Veye | 12 Oct 2020
When the pandemic struck in early 2020, only some businesses had started working from home and switched their work to online. Coronavirus outbreak forced the organisations to expedite it further.
Now after prolonged day to day restrictions, as more staff started working from home and getting used to it, the majority of the companies are finetuning their work to ease the remote working.
In the initial stages, the purpose was to keep employees safe and avoid further spread of the virus. But slowly, companies started altering HR policies to suit work from home arrangements and making it more efficient and effective.
Organisations have been implementing technology and initiating processes to keep the operations ongoing. They have deployed cloud-based technology so as to enable staff to work flexibly and for a successful prolonged remote working.
A recent survey showed that the majority of office workers currently working from home due to the virus outbreak, believe, logging on remotely from home will become more common once the coronavirus crisis abates.
With offsite working getting more common, the organisations have started seeing benefits in remote working. They can avail more savings in overheads like lower real estate and office expenses.
Forward thinking organisations are already investing these savings into digital transformation so that they attain the flexibility, speed and efficiency required during unpredictable situations, as also to position to capitalise on new opportunities in the future.
As we delve more into handling this difficult situation, it appears many workers will continue to have the option to work from home permanently. Even amidst a global crisis, employees are reporting greater productivity and higher job satisfaction, which is translating into enormous profitability for their employers. Remote work may be the foundation of the future of work
