While many executive teams of companies are still on the fence of continuing to allow remote work to their employees, many other companies were extremely impressed by how their employees performed remotely throughout the pandemic. This performance has earned a lot of employees the ability to continue working remotely, which while great for the employees, can still pose some threats to companies. These threats were what caused hesitation in remote work pre-pandemic for these executive level teams considering their options. For example, the most prominent threat would be how remote work impacts the relationships between managers and their team members. Many managers will discover that their managerial styles were more effective when able to be enforced face to face, which can lead to some obvious trouble if these relationships became completely digital. Similarly, some trouble for employees can come as a result of being incapable of effectively communicating to cross-functional teams without being in the office, diminishing the quality of output between the two teams. The truth is, these two threats are both capable of being worked through with dedicated employees and leading managers, which lays credence to the idea that remote work is actually more beneficial to organizations than they let on. That said, being prepared for the threats that do impose on that value is imperative. To better prepare for these threats, please read on the resource supporting this post for more information.
