Could remote working be the future of work?
As all the normal rules for business and social interactions are shredded daily by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, working remotely has become a lifeline for UK businesses.
Many organisations that have previously ignored remote working are making an overnight u-turn, or those that only allowed hybrid working when team workloads overflowed, now need a framework, some rules and fast ideas for keeping morale up.
But with enforced working from home likely to last for weeks and months, how will teams sustain their productivity? How can executives reorienting their businesses hope to ensure remote workers’ focus and mindfulness?
As an all-remote company with teams in 65 countries, we researched the working habits of 3,000 remote workers - before the coronavirus lockdowns - to help refine our own policies. We talked to some seasoned remote workers: one third of our survey has worked this way for 3-4 years; a quarter of them has 5-9 years’ remote work experience and one in ten has been doing it for between 10 and 15 years.
