Remote working during the pandemic shrank employees' worlds

Remote working during the pandemic shrank employees' worlds

The rituals of office work used to mean communication with colleagues was a given. Now, fewer than 30% of knowledge workers work from the office every day.

Employees that switched to remote work became less connected. Groups also became static as workers focused on existing connections instead of making new ones.

However, finding ways to restore these post-pandemic work communities may be key to ongoing wellbeing at work.

The pandemic forced an abrupt change to remote work

The pandemic forced an abrupt change to remote work

Before the pandemic, workers constantly interacted with colleagues and contacts. But since working from home, employees experienced a loss of connection.

Research found that 73% of people miss socialising in person, and 46% miss work-related side conversations that happen in the office. These social ties people experience in the workplace feed into their sense of attachment and belonging at work.

Some find the loss of interactions less significant

Introverts don't miss their colleagues as much, and those with caring responsibilities find the benefits of remote work outweigh any negatives.

  • The onus is also on companies to find better ways to translate in-person culture into the online space so that colleagues can continue to connect in meaningful ways.
  • Good remote company communications may mean creating a newsletter, podcast or virtual town halls to share information workers may have otherwise absorbed in the office.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum
