Work From Anywhere (2)
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.
London, 28 February 2022 - Wurkr, the UK and India-based immersive SaaS Digital Workplace application enabling collaboration and productivity while working from anywhere has announced an innovative program for startups around the world. Using this program, companies can enjoy premium features such as adding up to 50 team members to their Wurkr workplace, having up to 10 people in a video meeting, enjoying a real-time chat, screen sharing, grid view, room lock, 2000 video minutes per month, customer support, and multiple screen sharing.
For about 31% of Linkedin members, the flexible work policy has been a job selection factor. If they are not offered the flexible working option, it is evident that the employees will not take up the offer. Employees are now very keen to have workplace flexibility.
With this being the final blog in our “Work Culture in 2022” series we hope you have picked up on some of the exciting changes bound for the working world. We believe that you are also making some genuine efforts to create a positive culture at work.
What is a Distributed Team?
If you’re a start-up looking to stay away from the traditional 9 to 5 office work environment or a company looking to shake things up, distributed teams might be the way forward. The distributed team's dynamic is one of the more interesting new ways of building a company as it completely takes a step away from how we’ve been working for the last 50 years.
With many big companies, like Robinhood, shifting to remote-first working environments, it is a wise idea for other office-based companies to at least consider the extra possibilities that moving to a flexible work-from-home system can bring.
The knock-on effects of the Covid pandemic have forced company culture to develop faster than ever before. In order to operate during lockdowns and uncertainty, offices had to embrace the new workplace culture of ‘Hybrid Working’. Hybrid working is a flexible approach to modern employment where workers are given the choice between working from the office or at home remotely.
With all big transition periods, there are some people that can get left behind and need extra support to deal with the culture shifts. Understandably with office culture remaining largely unchanged since the mid-to-late 20th century after the second world war where developed nations settled down and began outsourcing factory work and shifting to the more ‘glamorous’ office workplace environment.
