Only a few years ago remote working was rare. Teams and departments tended to be based together, with members often sitting just feet apart. Employees of big organisations rarely worked from home.
The advent of the internet, email and mobile technologies has changed all of that. Today it is perfectly possible to do most office based jobs from anywhere there’s internet access.Â Many people now work regularly from home, and teams can be dispersed across offices around the world.
As a result the skills needed to flourish at work are being transformed.
Meeting the Challenge
In some ways the changes brought about by remote working have been liberating. Less commuting, less distraction and more flexibility suit some roles and personalities. Many people report improved creativity, productivity and job satisfaction as a result.
But the lack of structure and schedule can be bewildering. Personal relationships are vulnerable because of the lack of face-to-face contact and informal communication. Supervision and support are often inadequate.
