Absolutely, I believe the pandemic has shown us that we don’t need tall fancy buildings to get our work done. Many organizations including ours made the switch to permanent remote work when we noticed that our employees were equally, if not more productive at the comfort of their homes. Even organizations like Apple which literally has a spaceship for an office, have employees resisting a return to the office where they have numerous benefits like free food, nap pods, etc.
This leads me to believe that the future of work will be hybrid, with remote work playing a major part in it, hopefully.

@Springworks - Totally agree once again! There were so many things this pandemic shined a lot on, many of which you talked about. Sounds like the switch has worked well for you and your team! I’m sure it will for many other brands too.

Thanks again for sharing!

Greatly agree. Before I had to travel every week to oversee our production facilities in another country. Now I work 100% remotely and communicate with the people who are stationed locally in order to get the needed information. My CEO, in the beginning, was quite worried and not convinced. Now he can see the (financial :wink: advantages to this change. Personally, it can be isolating, sometimes. But once I found a certain routine things became better. I never understood that people have to actually go to an office in order to sit there and do their work. COVID changed perceptions and opened many peoples mind. Also the old-school-minds.

@Romy78957682 Absolutely! I totally agree with you there. So many companies are seeing that it’s possible to be productive (even more so since there’s no office distractions) and that it can be done effectively. I’m so glad to hear it’s working out for you.

I think if combating isolation is the only issue, it’s not too bad since it can be remedied.

Thank you for sharing your response!

Definitely!! Everybody will be liking the remote culture even after the pandemic is over. Things have been good so far with the companies as well as the employees. Saved travel time, no office politics, and work is the only focus, what else does anyone want from a job. People get time with their families, friends, and pets. Most importantly work requirements are also met.

Springworks is one such organization that is following a permanent remote culture with perfect employee engagement.

I think after such a long period of remote working, it becomes a worker’s habit and routine. Somehow, they may adapt and feel more comfortable when working remotely.

Yes…Remote work will be there in foreseeable future for sure.

I think that the remote work will stay here and will become strong as well. But only if the companies find the way to work effectively by tracking their work and time. That is why they should look for apps that will do that for them. We use workvector.com to do this for us and we are more than satisfied.

People want it!
The genie is 100% out of the bottle.

Absolutely Yes! Remote working is not going anywhere after pandemic. Pandemic made us see that work can be done from work as well. Now when you can do work from anywhere , why would anyone like to spend their 9 hours a day in an office cell?

I certainly see many companies going remote even after the pandemic. It may not be for everyone but we can’t deny that it does have many pros

I think thats could be more comfortable for many people.

hi every one i’m new here, if you have any advice.

For most of digital workers, most probably.

Before the pandemic ability to work remote has been seen as a perk, an additional thing that a recruiter would add to the job description to lure more people in.

At the moment, as a contractor when taking a job that is not remote I’ll charge extra. It’s not a perk anymore and it raises questions on why would you make me commute somewhere physically if there is absolutely no need to do so.

I think Remote work is very much important for talented people who are not gaining their targeted job valuation in their region. Also, it’s very much important for the proper distribution of Knowledge and Proper Work facility!

If companies figure out how to work remotely effectively then yes. I think that many people will prefer to work from home and some employers will realize that it is financially favourable for the employer. But of course they will have to make it possible for the employees to work from home. So they will have to find time and work tracking apps - as workvector.com etc.
