The world of work will never be alike again. Just as 9/11 converted how the world travels, the COVID -19 pandemic will swap how we work. These changes will increase how individuals commute, workplaces, interact with others, manage tasks, and more.
The negative effects of remote work are evident in the results of a now martec group survey of more than 1,200 employees nationwide. The survey found that a mere 16 percent of workers were thriving, defined as profited from working from home.
Generally, the share of employees who said their mental health was good fell to 28 percent from 62 percent since they begin working from home. Job satisfaction left to 32 percent from 57 percent, and Motivation fell to 36 percent from 56 percent.
Moreover, 40 percent of employees said their productivity had reduced; only 19 percent said they were better productive at home.
How can organizations develop for this transition? Here are some steps they can take:
Assured and Clean
To start, firms will need to accept rigorous cleaning procedures for customers and employees. Regarding COVID-19, the CDC has promulgated recommendations for how cleaning should be done.
These procedures will be required to be transparent to all parties. This may hold the form of certification, such as the security inspection notices posted in elevators, or a rating, such as a health department posting in a restaurant. As with other safety items, these practices will need to be audited.
Employees and guests can expect increasingly invasive forms of health monitoring. It is easy to imagine some of these changes become part of how we operate in the extended term. Examples of changes will include active monitoring of health and sign, from screening for viruses to temperature monitoring. These interchange will alter the concepts of privacy in ways we have not anticipated.
Testing and vaccines
Testing and isolation are likely to play key roles in the fight against COVID-19 for some time to come, even after most of the UK population has been vaccinated. Health officials believe that at the minimum, a third of COVID-19 sufferers show no symptoms of the virus, and it is still not fully understood whether the vaccines stop people from being carriers.
