The Asynchronous Shift in Remote Work
by Elle Werle
It’s pretty clear that this new year isn’t going to be a return to normalcy. Not even close. Remote work is here to stay and millions of us are feeling the strain of solitude.
A survey conducted by Gartner found that 74% of CFOs intend to make remote work permanent for some employees. After a pandemic made it necessary, organizations started to realize the benefits of remote work. These include higher employee retention and productivity, and a reduced environmental impact.
In This Together?
A huge problem facing all of us is isolation. We’re all struggling to connect to each other. The ‘human impact’ of meeting in person has deteriorated, and we’re feeling it. People are feeling alone.
This issue follows us into our (home) offices. How can we keep warm relationships with colleagues we never see anymore, or in lots of cases never even met?
The answer is not more Zoom meetings! They are time-consuming and, more often than not, inefficient.
Getting Our Priorities Straight
If video meetings aren’t the answer, and we still can’t meet in person, then what is the answer? We can start by asking ourselves what matters.
The ‘human impact’ on our new, remote world matters. Finding new, efficient, and enjoyable ways to communicate matters. How we feel everyday matters. Connecting with colleagues and loved ones matters.
