Happy with Work from Home Model?
Redefining the whole World’s employment and employee engagement trend.
With the lifestyle we had before COVID 19, our social life had got restricted to an extent of hardly any interaction with our neighbors, or we weren’t even familiar with the faces in our own apartments, or we hardly found time for our distant family members.
Post-Covid, our social lives will be further curbed as deliverables will matter more and not the number of hours which will make us glued to our laptops for more than the hours we spent in offices and travel. Social life will suffer. Relations with spouses will get stressed as there isn’t a break given in a relation. Life and relations will get monotonous and more repetitive. You won’t be able to walk into anyone’s house without prior permission but only on weekends. Work-life won’t end once you reach home. Work-life balance will get imbalanced to the extent of not being able to distinguish the ending line between work and personal life.
Post-2008 recession, the measuring parameters for performance had got rigid and one resource was required to do the work of two resources. Luxuries and benefits were cut down.
Furthermore, Technology is advanced to the extent of tracking and measuring performances more rigorously. Hereon, Companies won’t be measuring seconds and minutes, but the amount of results yielded. Task quality and Task duration won’t be emphasised upon, but ROI on the resource and success ratios for tasks assigned will be measured. Since efforts won’t be visible only results will be measured.
Competition will worsen.
It’s always a mutual deal of ‘Give and Take’ with any Employer for an Employee. Now the definition of giving will be redefined.
The ratios of variable pay compared to salaries increased after the last recession. And were applicable to most of the roles unlike earlier, wherein only Seniors had variable pay or very less people in the Company had Variable pay. Now even salaries will be clearly compared with the delivered outcome.
All Individual Contributing roles will convert on Work from Home. More sectors will adapt to the same.
Welcome to the virtual heaven which we are eager to turn out to hell.
