Since the pandemic in March, when everyone went home to work there has been a lot of buzz about remote working being the wave of the future. I have to wonder if this is really the true.
Sure, there are some great aspects to remote learning. To name a few:
It has become clear that long-term remote working is an important tool to enhance an employee’s flexibility. However, fully remote working creates loss of culture and personal connection that is crucial to the effectiveness and productivity of a business.
In particular, it is difficult for younger people new to the company and work force. These employees long for the socialization with their peers provided in an office environment. For them working remotely can be lonely. It can also be difficult to learn remotely. Yes, training can be done remotely. But you lose that “lean across the desk casual question asked’ that is such a crucial part of the learning process.
Ultimately, my hope is that we merge the best of both worlds. Working back at the office, understanding at times working from home is better, and being flexible enough to celebrate the mix!
