UNLEASH World is coming… Will you be there?
It can seem like remote work is being rolled back somewhat. There are tales of workers being asked back to the office as businesses grapple with the need to use their real estate or the need to get effective collaboration.
That’s definitely not the case for everyone though — with most of the audience in the webinar stating that they were keen to keep running a remote model — and for some of those that go back, there are specific cultural reasons.
For example, Purvis explained that at CERN with groundbreaking physical equipment to run and a culture that relies on collaboration, returning to a central workplace made sense for their culture, even though a pandemic-sparked Work From Anywhere approach made sense during the last two years. In addition, it was proven that structures of work can be tweaked and evolved rapidly, too.
In fact, as Saidy added, often it’s about testing and learning with, for many organizations, remote and hybrid models only becoming apparent as options during the last two years. Here, he said, it’s important to remember what the company is trying to drive with whatever model it chooses, understanding how creativity, collaboration, and culture will be hit by the working model of choice.
And, warned Gregorczyk, it’s about not getting caught up in the headlines. Sometimes it can seem like remote work is either a total bad or a total good: the truth is likely it is a little bit of both and what is more important is the culture that guards it and how employees are enabled and managed in this model.
However, what is clear is that, as of yet, there is no clear answer on whether remote work works for everyone.
So, where next?
