Remote working was always something that I did not fully embrace as an employment option. Frankly, many of my performance issues involved employees who worked from home.
Then I started looking at Remote Working as an employee benefit. Something employees could do a few times a month.
More recently, I supported an organization with a solid remote working hybrid model. Where employees came into the office and worked remotely on set days. It worked!
Never did I anticipate COVID-19; ghosted streets and 100% remote; ready or not.
So, now more than ever, we all need a place to go for guidance, information, a good laugh and to share our experiences because the research is abundantly clear - the most disengaged employees are the ones that come to work every day and the ones that work remote every day.
Be safe; Be well!
