The pandemic has completely changed our approach to how we go about our work lives. Employees who were once reluctant to work from home are now more accustomed to doing their jobs from the comfort of their own homes. In response, businesses have been forced to adapt their training methods and workplace culture to accommodate a more hybrid workforce.
The new normal is here, and it’s time to embrace it. Remote work can be a wonderful thing for both employees and employers if done right, as it gives workers more flexibility with their schedules, helps companies reduce overhead costs, and can even be of great benefit to the environment.
However, it also comes with some risks: the lack of face-to-face interactions can make it harder for managers to provide support and stay on top of employee performance metrics.
