When the COVID-19 pandemic forced most people to work from home, many assumed it’d be temporary. However, as our new Work from Home Productivity Survey reveals, many people across Canada are seeing upsides to remote work.
With working from home on the table for the long term, organizations have to pay attention to what’s working well and what’s not.
Across industries, remote workers are experiencing benefits like saving time, money, and connecting more with their loved ones.
Of course, there are still challenges that come with blending work with life at home. From technology barriers to caring for others, staying productive while working from home isn’t always easy. The good news is that employers have an opportunity to meet some of these challenges directly, to keep productivity – and spirits – high.
It is possible to improve the employee experience, even with a remote workforce. Offering the right communication, collaboration and remote working technology, plus benefits like flexible hours can go a long way towards making employees comfortable.
