ServicesDEFINING THE NEW NORMAL
The impact from COVID-19 on the way we work has demonstrated that we have the capability to work remotely. But how do we develop a successful return to office strategy?
BUILD YOUR STRATEGY
Rely on the Data
Engage employees & leaders to determine the best approach
The impact from COVID-19 on the way we work has demonstrated that, in theory, we have the capability to work remotely. Without understanding employee experience, productivity or developing a recovery strategy, the return to office post COVID-19 restrictions will not be successful.
It is beneficial for any organisation to use this time to understand employee experience to support the current norm and to develop a workplace strategy to support the future norm.
There are many assumptions made about the future of work, but without engaging with employees and leaders to listen to their feedback and discuss their experiences, assumptions remain assumptions.
The idea of flexible working was developed based on the pre-COVID-19 norms. While in principle the concept will likely stay the same, there is benefit in assessing this concept against the current norm and future norm based on employee feedback and experience.
Heightened awareness of hygiene will impact future office design, workplace protocols, etiquette and experience.
Reliable technology to enable a remote workforce has never been so important. Technology solutions, assets and network capacity are all currently being challenged.
We can use this time to ensure we have the right solutions, processes, protocols and support for our workforce now and to plan for the future norm.
