The pandemic has brought the first crisis for companies: it was necessary to organize remote work for employees, introduce an operating mode and a control system.
When the pandemic subsided, a new crisis emerged: people need to be brought back to the office. And is it necessary?
For example, In April 2020, 70% of Americans "always or sometimes" worked remotely, according to Gallup. Today, that share is closer to 56%, even though 61% say they prefer working from home.
Not surprisingly, people enjoyed working from home. Nearly four in 10 respondents (38%) estimate working from home is saving them over $5,000 a year. Those savings come from not having to eat out, not buying gas, or needing dry cleaning. One in five believe they’re saving around $200 a week, or roughly $10,000 annually!
Although people love working from home, it turns out many still don’t know when their workday should end. Thirty-five percent say overworking and being unable to “unplug” is the biggest challenge of remote work.
Dealing with non-work distractions (28%), troubleshooting tech problems alone (28%), and getting reliable WiFi (26%) also frustrate the remote workforce. It certainly takes a toll on the job, which is why companies are increasingly determined to bring people back to their offices. Moreover, it is impossible to establish precise control over each employee, and team cohesion is also lost.
We have already found out that the majority of employees do not want to return to their offices. And if you force them, then what is it fraught with? High staff turnover. People will simply quit and look for another company that allows them to work remotely. One more headache for a company.
And what should companies do in such a situation? Alternatively, allow employees to stay at remote work, but live together under one roof, for example, in a villa in the middle of beautiful nature. This is both pleasant for the employee and beneficial for the company, as the productivity of the team will increase and the control system will work harmoniously: each team member monitors what the other is doing.
