It’s probably safe to say that for a large percentage of organisations around the world, the pandemic has fast tracked the future of work in many ways. Perhaps one of the most dramatic changes has been the on-mass shift to remote working. I have had many conversations with business leaders who have all been blown away at not only how quickly their employees adapted, but also the levels of productivity they’ve witnessed. Considering the circumstances, I think many would say it has been surprisingly successful, which is perhaps the reason for the roll out of new policies allowing employees the flexibility to work from home for at least part of their working week on a longer-term basis.
