The Future of Remote Work
The Current State of Remote Work
In the recent Twitter saga, Elon Musk has mandated employees to return to office for work. The remote work arrangement gained popularity during the pandemic. However, because the pandemic was not a planned event, this arrangement is considered an anomaly and is oftentimes not stipulated in contractual agreements. According to CTV News, when companies mandate the return to office and fire employees who are not compliant, the employees are not able to sue for constructive dismissal as the remote arrangement was not contractually agreed. Hence, employees have no choice but to return to the office as instructed.
Employers have many concerns about remote work such as the lack of a collaborative environment, the inability to monitor employee’s activity and a fall in productivity. As such, with the pandemic winding down, companies are starting to encourage workers to return to the office. This includes large financial institutions and law firms. It is no surprise that this return to office is met with resistance from the employees. Many have grown accustomed to the flexibility and work-life balance that the remote arrangement allows. At this juncture, companies find themselves trying to perfect this hybrid working arrangement to reap the benefits of an in-person arrangement while keeping employees satisfied.
“More than 80 percent of Canadian remote workers would quit their job and look for new ones if their employer asked them to return to the office five days a week.”
How TRIYO Bridges The Gap
TRIYO affords employers the ability to gain transparency into workflows even in remote arrangements. The lack of in-person discussions surrounding “work to be done” is supplemented with the ability to collaborate with structured workflows and by creating tasks, from requests originating in an email or other communication channels, that can be formally tracked. More importantly, this is done without compromising the privacy of the individual employees which is often associated with activity monitoring.
