Coronavirus will become the world’s largest test of remote/flexible working.
Companies and managers who’ve been resistant to doing this will be forced to undertake it under difficult circumstances. Companies and managers that already embraced this flexibility for its teams have the advantage – kinks and frustrations were addressed long ago.
Employees of companies that are doing remote for the first time – don’t mess this up. Don’t gloat, don’t “I told you so”. Do your best to make it work. Emotions are high and this season will be a landmark in everyone’s memory, so let it be the proof that remote working can be done well.
