Is there a silver lining in remote work?
In a June 2020 survey of 800 U.S.-based employees, McKinsey found that remote working employees see a positive impact on their daily work with higher engagement levels and a stronger sense of well-being when compared to those in non-remote jobs. However, remote workers with dependents appear to be faring better than those who are more isolated. Of remote-working fathers, 79.4 percent reported positive work effectiveness. This contrasts with mothers, of whom only 39.4 percent reported positive work effectiveness (McKinsey, 2020). Of employees working in non-remote positions that offer less flexibility, 70.5 percent reported negative work effectiveness.
As mentioned at the beginning, Imagicle re-opened its offices in October 2020. We evaluated till mid of October how to act at our best, how to limit risks allowing a reduced presence, giving priority to the ones also having problems in home working.
In my opinion, that was the best thing to do, making it optional for the employees to choose the best suitable place. Of course, physical interaction with colleagues and the office is still necessary, but it can be carried on with a new mindset for the people who haven’t realized its value yet.
Movement restrictions forced companies to think of new working arrangements. The return phase of Covid-19 presents an opportunity for businesses to rethink their responses to workplace challenges. We have reached a unique leadership momentum to reflect on our working arrangements. As the survey mentioned above highlighted, employees need variety, and this is a call for tailored responses.
Smart Working may still need some improvement but has proven to be an effective way to maintain productivity while keeping a healthy work-life balance.
