By Dean Norton, All Covered – The COVID-19 pandemic shook the entire nation, forcing many people out of their ‘comfort zones.’ There were some things that were easier to adjust to, while some other things proved to be much more challenging. More than a year after organizations rushed to ask workers to stay home, many businesses are officially adopting hybrid work as a standard workforce model, and have begun hiring in new geographies where there is no physical business presence. Some are planning to surrender real estate and scale back their brick-and-mortar facilities. Others have signaled acceptance of the dynamic model with some employees in the office while others are remote. To that end, business giants such as Salesforce, Google, and Twitter have implemented strategies to help support both return to in-person work at their locations across the country, alongside support of their remote teams. In the end, there is no one size fits all – and that’s a trend that’s here to stay.
The changes brought by the pandemic have presented a host of issues around human resources as well as information technology. Organizations are actively evaluating the successes and lessons from the shift to more remote work —in addition to what challenges still remain.
