Rethink work to better support on-site, contingent and remote workers
COVID-19 has shattered the paradigm of in-office work
Remote work, once a consideration for many organizations but rarely a priority, has become a health and safety imperative. Even as organizations plan their recovery strategies, however, remote work will remain a cornerstone of the postpandemic future of work. This leaves HR leaders with a series of critical decisions to make around which parts of the workforce can work remotely, which should stay remote even after recovery, and how their organizations should navigate follow-on changes, such as facilitating collaboration and building relationships.
Rethink how and where work gets done
Organizations need a new framework, not to answer “How soon can our employees be back in the office?” but to answer, “What touchpoints in our organization require in-person interaction?” This includes a switch from assessing the suitability of roles to be performed remotely to assessing suitability of workflows to be completed remotely. Then, HR leaders must understand the supporting processes and technology needed to enable employees to flow seamlessly between on-site and remote working modes.
