Work is changing
The pandemic and its aftermath have significantly changed how we work and how we expect to work in the future.
Remote work has proven to be far more effective than many had anticipated. The flexibility this has given to employees all over the world had changed how we think about what are normal working conditions. This is not without its challenges for employers, however.
The loss of social capital, a diminishing sense of cohesion between colleagues and issues related to what has been dubbed “Zoom Fatigue” are just some of the areas which require attention. Beyond that, business travel as a whole has been put into question – initially, because it simply wasn’t possible - and now, because when more and more companies are signing up to climate pledges, cutting emissions has become paramount.
Many of the ensuing problems associated with the New Ways of Working can be addressed by moving your meetings into Virtual Spaces using Virtual Reality technology.
We have highlighted some of these issues in the following articles:
