The Remote Working Challenges Digital Businesses Face After COVID-19

Thinking of working from home even after COVID-19? If the future is remote working, these are the biggest challenges businesses will need to overcome.

Why Working From Home Is Tougher Than You Thought | Forbes

A new workplace survey by Engine Insights for Smartsheet reveals that working from home as a result of COVID-19 is difficult for all workers, but none more than Generation-Z and Millennials. In fact, despite being digital natives, fully 95% of Gen-Z workers and 93% of Millennial workers admit they’re having a tough time with the transition to working remotely.

Three-fourths of the U.S. workforce feels less connected than they did before the COVID-19 pandemic, reports Smartsheet, with notably higher numbers for Gen-Z (82%) and Millennials (81%). Moreover, since they started working from home, 60% of American workers feel less informed about what’s going on within their company. But, here again, younger workers reflect higher numbers, with 74% of Gen-Zers and 66% of Millennials, compared to just 53% and 50% of Gen-Xers and Boomers, respectively.

What are the Benefits and Challenges of Remote Working for Global Businesses? – Peter Kinselley

What are the Benefits and Challenges of Remote Working for Global Businesses?, with Peter Kinselley of Cardinus Risk Management, at the Connect Summit.

Prior to March 2020 remote working was thought to enhance work-life balance.

Since then, we have been immersed in remote working and now understand many of the challenges and issues that it brings about. As we come out of the pandemic, most organizations are planning on keeping those changes or at least adopting new working practices.

Remote working can help employees spend their time more intelligently, giving greater flexibility over how and where they work, which, when managed correctly, can be a benefit to all – think of all those parents stressing out over school pick-up times, for example.

But concerns around loneliness, loss of culture, lack of, or poor quality of social interactions, and lacking those moments of serendipity, which is widely recognized as a benefit of the office, make it a headache for organizations.

Looking back over this period, we can assess the pros and cons of remote working so that, looking forward, we can learn from our mistakes and create a workplace that works for all.
