Is ‘work from home’ the new norm? For many workers, it’s the current norm that may well become permanent.
Some sources claim that 60% of CFOs say they’re ready to make – or already have made – remote work a permanent option for employees.
Now, HR leaders are working to adapt remote work policies to ensure they fit this new reality.
“Given the rise in remote work, it’s almost critical to review and update HR policies, especially since it used to be when a person joined a company, policies were in place,” says Max Muller, Principal at Max Muller & Associates. “Now policies are chasing the reality, and the reality isn’t well-formed.”
HR leaders are urging companies to think flexibly about new policies, given that working conditions are changing and evolving rapidly, and to deliver clear and frequent communications.
