Now that the business world has settled into the work-from-home experiment, how are we doing? Like most things, it depends on whom you ask. Remote work has certainly created opportunities, allowing many workers to avoid long commutes and to spend more quality time with family. It has broadened the talent pool for many employers. Flexibility needs to be part of the future. It was important before the pandemic, and we’re not going back now. But remote work also exposed social risks. Workers are experiencing burnout and loneliness. Without face-to-face communication, many miss having a sense of shared purpose and are more indifferent to their employers. At the same time, companies are struggling to retain and recruit talent in a highly competitive environment. None of these issues are going to get better on their own—at least not anytime soon.
