At the moment, a lot of organisations are making decisions to make Work from Home (WFH) permanent. Their reasons are solid. Many employees have been expressing a preference to continue to WFH after the COVID threat decreases. To many leaders’ surprise, productivity doesn’t seem to have been negatively impacted by WFH. Neither does engagement. The opportunity to reduce costs by reducing the company’s real estate footprint is palpable.
But how much can we trust this data? And should we really be making business-as-usual decisions from data gathered in a crisis?
During this event, we will discuss:
- pre-COVID research on WFH that adds nuance to the in-COVID data
- how and why the data might have shifted during the three stages of WFH during COVID
- who and what is missing from the data, and why and how this might have a well-being cost
- whether improved individual productivity can counter a potential decrease in collective performance
- what future organisational design and success might look like
