It’s official, working from home is here to stay for good. 1 in 2 employees now work mostly from home, and 70% would like to continue doing so post-pandemic. But are we truly prepared?
While remote work has a long list of advantages – it doesn’t come without its flaws. One survey reports that 56% of people get along worse with their colleagues from home, and 30% enjoy their job less from home. WFH has transformed our understanding of culture and connection. So, what are the long-term impacts of moving to permanent remote work? And how we can we get it right?
In this episode of EI at Work, we’re joined by Jeffrey Sanchez-Burks, the William Russell Kelly Professor of Business Administration at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business. Jeffrey is a leading Behavioural Scientist, Researcher and Author in the domain of human dynamics and EI. He joins co-hosts Marie El Daghl and Genos International CEO, Dr Ben Palmer to discuss:
