How the pandemic has changed the way we work

Wellbeing and Safety: First and foremost is that safety and wellbeing of employees takes precedence over everything else. The current economic crisis has also pushed the bounds of how employers view the employee experience. Personal factors rather than external factors take precedence over what matters for organizations and employees alike. Employing such measures can be an effective way to promote physical health and improve the emotional well-being of employees.

Increase in Remote Working: Remote working has not only given the employees to work with safety, it gives the opportunities to expand critical competencies employers will need to collaborate digitally. Further it also brings the cost incurred per individual for the organization. Companies tracking may differ to analyse the employee engagement on the level of productivity, mails, coordination, involvement and understand the employee experience. An organization has to be prepared to adjust employee experience strategies and should take into consideration whether and how to shift performance goal-setting and employee evaluations for a remote context.

There are examples of Google and Microsoft who are ensuring on the comfort working of their remote workers by allocating amount for their Work from Home set up.

Online Meetings do work: Online meeting in the past was about “Can you hear me?” “Can you please speak into the microphone?” “Can you repeat that?” “I can’t see your screen,” and “Would everyone please mute their phones?” and not to forget calls dropping off in between repeatedly. Amazingly, because of this forced need to meet and update remote meetings are better off be practiced to social distancing, in fact all of us have quickly gotten very good at running them well. Team members have figured out how to mute their audio and phones, everyone speaks clearly and loudly into their microphones, and the process of screen sharing has turned out to be straightforward.

Importance of Workplace: After working from home and collaborating at a distance, the importance of the workplace and all that it offers has become clear: An office is more than just a place to work. The workplace drives innovation and growth and fosters culture and sense of community, while providing the tools and resources people need to be truly productive.

A workplace is so much more than the sum of people, technology, architecture & furniture. A well-designed space supports all the different ways we work and brings people and technology together to boost productivity, enhance wellbeing and build trust through face-to-face interactions. As organizations adapt to the changes they face while working through this pandemic, we have an opportunity to bring people together at a time they most need human connections and to help businesses move forward.

Difference between skills and roles: Lately but we have realised that critical roles and critical skills are both different. The roles are definitely critical for the workflow of an organization. On the other hand, the skills are those advantages which are required to take it to the next level. Hence the organization can definitely help employees to develop on certain skills for their career advancement

Humanization of employees: While some organizations have recognized the humanitarian crisis of the pandemic and prioritized the well-being of employees as people over employees as workers, others have pushed employees to work in conditions that are high risk with little. It is important to be deliberate in the approach you take and be mindful of the effects on employee experience, which will be long-lasting.  Address inequities if remote and on-site employees have been treated differently. Engage task workers in team culture and create a culture of inclusiveness.

Such crisis management do lead to new ways and thoughts to work and communicate better and as we struggle and concentrate better on more human-centred health and social issues, individual administrators, corporations, and businesses always need to be vigilant and recognize and strengthen resilience to emerge more robust and more agile than ever from this horrific event.

Of course, it is easier to say than to do. A dramatic shift in organizational paradigms and not merely a twist to crisis management strategies are necessary to learn from this crisis and make needed adjustments to become sufficiently resourceful and versatile.
