Work from anywhere

  • from Shaastra :: vol 02 issue 01 :: Jan - Feb 2023

The remote work revolution has forced leaders to embrace technology, and discover new ways of working.

The pandemic turned the world of work upside down. Now that we're past the worst of it, it's worth asking: what did we learn from more than two years of upheaval? The world has had over two decades' experience with remote work: there are well-documented case studies and many learnings. The pandemic challenged the decades-old notion that the office would be a permanent fixture in white-collar work, according to Peter Cappelli, Professor at The Wharton School and the author of The Future of the Office. It wasn't an easy transition for those leaders, who simply waited for things to go back to the way they were.

Today, hybrid work has forced us to reimagine the role of the office as creative spaces where people get to occasionally meet and ideate together, instead of spending a couple of hours commuting to get there every day. Not everyone still sees it that way, but the reality is that work can happen from anywhere without a drop in productivity, if leaders let go of their fixed mindsets.
