The pandemic has reinforced the new norms in all walks of life with working from home leading the queue. But with pandemic being a passé, it is high time to bid adieu to this ‘most casual’ approach of formal work culture. Here all the valid reasons to say ‘yes’ to work from an office space.
Effective Training and Development
Any organization would prefer employees from different backgrounds; thereby, making way for varying approaches to addressing the same problem. This knowledge is what spreads across desks, coffee machines and parking lots delivering major training and personal development sessions - that would otherwise have been left out in a remote work culture.
Would you rather pay for your training sessions from your salary during remote work or learn from the senior officials while working in an executive office space?
Avoid the Real Burnout
The term work-life balance has become quite popular amidst a remote working culture since the pandemic era. The term refers to demarcating your family time and work hours efficiently. Procrastination, lack of real-time monitoring, distracted attention due to family needs, and countless breaks to recharge can result in a complete non-synchronization of work-life balance. This could also lead to a career-sabotaging stage called burnout.
Hence, it's high-time we realize the importance of working from an office environment to boost productivity, focus and ROIs.
Earn the Constant Support
It is not easy to achieve your business objectives and solve real-time problems in a distracted work environment. Creating a space that allows for new ideas to flow and better team interactions is the need of the hour. Choose your office that helps your team connect with each other physically and work together in a highly productive environment. Chat rooms and virtual connectivity do not offer peer-to-peer support; and more importantly, can result in lack of motivation and competitive spirit.
Studies indicate that employees working from home reported low efficiency levels at work compared to those working in a corporate office environment.
Steer Clear of Distorted Growth Indicators
If you are also part of the ‘delayed growth and promotion club’, blame it on the remote work culture. Seniors are wary of being accused of micromanagement while monitoring subordinates' work, which in turn, has resulted in delayed career growth across the world. It is highly imperative that working from office can prevent bosses from misconstruing employees’ delayed reactions as poor performance.
However, easy and respite full remote work may seem, its cons are quickly outweighing its pros for employers and employees alike. Savings in fuel all seem to be losing ground when compared to quicker turnarounds and better communication at workplace.
