Overcoming the Challenges of Flexible Working

In the past two years, the way employees manage work and personal life has changed, and there is a tacit realization that productivity can be achieved regardless of working from the office or during set hours. Rather employees have learned to balance their job, personal lives, and their hobbies, without having to compromise on any, and they are not ready to give up comfort and flexibility anytime soon. 

Every other business newspaper has an article highlighting the disconnect between companies requiring employees to return to the office and employees being reluctant for the same. 

So this poses a challenge for many companies in different industries on how to recruit and manage remote/ hybrid teams whilst making sure that productivity, company culture, and motivation of employees remain intact. Further, there is no one size fits all, instead, customization as per the teams and departments is needed according to the factors like inter-employee interaction requirements, the number of collaborative projects, the extent of connection needed between teams, etc. Assessing the same for every team can be a herculean task especially when companies are still trying to wrap their heads around the no-office-flexi-working wave, acclimatizing employees of all generations with technologies like productivity tools, HRMS making sure that there is smooth cross-functionality. 

Many companies are asking the question – What is the point of having employees come to the office when the same or better quality results can be achieved through flexible teams?

Though there is no one set answer because even though now the definition of productivity has changed from being present in the office to actually getting work done, companies need to remember that the greatness of an organization is defined by the culture, values, and connection between the employees!
