Reasons why working from home shouldn’t just be temporary
Instead of thinking about the return to the office once life returns to normal, it’s time to think about the key things we’ve all learnt throughout the past months and how we can make changes to improve staff wellbeing.
According to research, 61% of employees have reported an improvement in their work-life balance as a result of home working. With an additional 43% saying the move had resulted in enhanced employee collaboration, and 38% reported an improved focus from their employees.
65% of employees stated that staff productivity had been maintained, or even increased during this time – it seems to be a win-win situation for most involved!
With most initiatives, there will be some negatives which come with working from home, including loneliness. But it’s all about adapting and progressing – check out our tips for motivating your workforce virtually here.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on how your organisation will be planning your ‘return to normality’ whenever that may be, or how you’ve learnt from the past months! Head over to LinkedIn to share.
