In remote work cultures, the most challenging task for the employer is to create a healthy employee remote work experience.
Employees love the remote work culture and are keen to work in an organization that provides a remote work environment. Have this in mind, businesses and organizations have been moving towards hybrid and remote work.
Wurkr, a virtual office software company, makes a compelling argument for the remote-first work model through a series of virtual team-building exercises and enabling a healthy culture while still working distributedly.
As the world largely transitioned from in-office culture to hybrid/remote-first culture, we saw a significant amount of support as well as the opposition. However, some companies like Yahoo, BestBuy and Reddit vehemently opposed the idea of working remotely. The reasons they had quoted were many. The major arguments among them were around the following premises:
Today, going to work no longer means going into a specific office like it used to; as many countries enter a post-pandemic world, we’re seeing flexible work environments— a mix of remote and on-site working, emerge across many organizations from small-scale to large companies. Remote work trends are increasing post-pandemic period.
The gig economy is growing at a pace faster than ever, all thanks to the extraordinary hype for remote and flexible work. Even before COVID-19 uprooted our traditional in-office work mode, the rise of the gig economy for freelancing was incredibly popular in countries like the U.S. The pandemic, however, transformed the way businesses pursue their operations too! Additionally, 20% of the current full-time workforce is planning to shift to freelancing.
Imagine working in a company that has its teammates distributed across 4 continents in the world. The team would definitely lack real connections among them; meeting apps do little to help that.
An already cool digital workplace, Wurkr has rolled out a new feature making the platform more efficient and user-friendly. With the new "profile configuration", you can make changes to all your profile settings from one place.
Be it availability, status messages, or integrating your personal Google workspace - do it from just a single point of access! We have outlined all the features here in this article.
Remote/hybrid work has been a huge topic of discussion these days. Everyone is debating on whether it is the right way to work. But we (Tim and I) have already brought Wurkr to the world, through which the teams can work even if they are globally distributed. We had a webinar with mint about how the work culture is undergoing a massive transformation.
The ability to communicate well and publicly present your ideas has so far helped a lot of people climb up the corporate ladder. While remote work might have hit the extroverted workforce hard, it was a great experience for others. Introverted persons have felt all their lives what extroverts are feeling in this new mode of work.
