Organizations are scrambling to find the ideal solution to their current work arrangements, particularly as some workers struggle to adapt to the new normal.
Serviced office company Servcorp has revealed a guide that can help companies mitigate the risk of the ongoing pandemic.
One of the more important aspects of a productive workplace during these times is ensuring that employees are safe and healthy. Building out the workplace that emphasizes physical and mental health, as well as implementing collaborative opportunities for remote workers will be key moving forward.
Additionally, leaders need to reflect on how the lockdown and transition to working from home impacted their organization. What did and didn’t work? How can HR and business leaders ensure that employees are supported while focusing on the company’s bottom line?
Flexibility will also be vital for companies looking to support their employees as much as possible. This means allowing workers to work from home if needed, as well as providing them access to tools and even a workspace that can aid in their work needs.
Finding ways to support workplace culture virtually is difficult, but if employers lead with clear and supportive messaging, employees will continue feeling connected with the colleagues and the company itself.
Additionally, training workers with the tools needed for adapting to the future of work. This means reskilling and upskilling workers so they can work alongside modern technologies.
