As strange as this new normal may be, this is a great opportunity for businesses to build a future-ready workforce.
You’ve probably been wondering when the day would come – the day you go back to the office after working from home during a pandemic. It’s been on everybody’s mind.
COVID-19 has significantly altered the way we work and live, and for the foreseeable future, it looks like many of these changes are here to stay.
Change in the workplace can be hard, especially if you’re not used to it. For freelancers, consultants and those already accustomed to working remotely, working from home hasn’t changed life too dramatically.
For the folks who have gone into the office and worked an 8-hour shift for their entire career, it’s another story. Some have adjusted, some are missing the change of scenery, and many are missing the solitude of their commute. Not the commute itself mind you, just the solitude.
And now, everybody is talking about going back – to work, to school. The question is: Are you ready to go back? If so, are you ready for more change? The office you left will most likely not be the office your return to, no matter how hard your company tries to soften the blow. This is where the most necessary skills you need in a pandemic (and life) come into play. In order to thrive in today’s fast-changing work environments, you’re going to need to be flexible and adaptable.

As strange as this new normal may be, this is a great opportunity for businesses to build a future-ready workforce. It’s the perfect time to improve the collaboration skills of your team, find the technological solutions that work on- and off-site, and develop practices that improve employee well-being and extend culture remotely.As it stands, the future is shaping up to be increasingly digital, remote-friendly, and perhaps, even remote-first. As people shift back to the office, it’s key to find the strengths and opportunities in all work environments to increase your organizational resiliency for years to come.
