Amazingly Simple Tips to Develop your Come-Back Strategy
Tech businesses have the most to benefit financially from a remote workforce and, as a result, have a nice incentive to encourage companies to continue with the WFH model.
Fremont, CA: As the conclusion of the pandemic approaches, many office-staff employers are discussing what their work strategy will look like in the future. Although it is anticipated that 25 percent of Americans will continue to work remotely in 2021, many people are eager to return to the workplace. Many, on the other hand, aren't. As an employer, one must devise a return-to-work strategy that pleases all levels of employees, maintains compliance, and satisfies the objectives of one's company.
Let us look at five things to consider when developing a return-to-office strategy:
Establishing End Goal: "Return to normal" was the goal for most employers immediately following the mass office closures in early 2020 - leadership was attempting to figure out how much longer before we can all go back to how things used to be. After the initial shock of the epidemic has worn off, many employers have had time to reconsider their work-from-home policies and what makes the most sense for their workers in the future. When planning one's own return-to-work strategy, consider what makes sense for one's organization post-pandemic. Does one require everyone to be present in the person all of the time? Or might implementing a flex-time schedule be advantageous to one's company and its employees? Determine this now and use it to guide the remainder of one's strategic decisions in the future.
Respect Core Values: One does not have to do what the "big people" do when it comes to identifying one's end objective and making decisions during the process. Facebook, Google, and Adobe were eager to declare plans to embrace remote labor indefinitely. Tech businesses have the most to benefit financially from a remote workforce and, as a result, have a strong incentive to encourage companies to continue with the WFH model. One should understand what competitors, as well as the rest of the industry, are doing, but one's firm has its unique people, culture, and one's business objectives that should be one's key influence in developing one's own return-to-office game plan.
