Post COVID-19 leadership has made a paradigm shift. Every business is witnessing a change in their organizations’ DNA. For how long – perhaps indefinitely. The pandemic has changed the way we worked in our contained and confined offices. But it’s time to seize it as an opportunity to improve and reposition the organization for the future instead of worrying about decades-old brick-and-mortar office setups.
According to a recent survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management, 2 out of 3 employers say maintaining employee morale during the pandemic has been a challenge, particularly companies with 500 employees or more. So, companies must shift focus to employee morale and corporate culture in the recovery phase of the crisis. (Geller, 2020)
Simultaneously, resilient leadership promotes his, her, their, etc. excellent followership, nurtured, and catalyzed by building deeper trust. These resilient leaders should begin by anticipating what success looks like at the end of recovery, how their businesses will prosper in the long term, and then guide their teams to develop an outcomes-based set of remote working. (Renjen 2020)
The future of work looks to have changed not by happenstance. Who would have thought that it would take a pandemic and not advanced technology to change our lives and how we work? With the rest of the world, we watched in disbelief as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold early in 2020 and changed life as we knew it. Among the most radical changes was the transition from in-office to remote working. The sudden increase in work-from-home created a cause for global discussion regarding best practices for bringing workforce teams together from multiple locations.
So, what is the future of work? What changes could be in store for the workplace, the workforce, and the nature of work itself? It is time to explore technologies like automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence to shape how we work, where we work, and how humans fit into that landscape.
