Covid-19 pandemic has taken a terrible toll on the world’s workforce. Individuals’ jobs are perhaps the biggest single component of their identity. The virus has broken through cultural and technological barriers that prevented remote work in the past, setting in motion a structural shift in the workplace.
Remote working has authorised many workers to perform their job duties entirely from home and can help protect both the public health and the continue the success of the business. A revolution, in both communication and technology, has brought about changes in every aspect of social life. The Internet (or Web3) has become the basis of a new economy, characterized by the importance of globalisation and information technology. Albeit the effects of the above changes have been noticeable on the labour market. It is influenced by the constant modification of both lifestyle and work habits. The phenomenon of remote working is usually defined as working from home, a personal office, or any other favourite spot of an employee. It questions whether remote work will completely replace traditional types of work.
It is argued that remote working risks social isolation for young workers. It indicates that young individuals appreciate face- to- face contact in the workplace. Furthermore, more than half the workforce has little or no opportunity for remote work. Some jobs require collaborating with others, using specialised machinery such as conducting CT scans, or making deliveries. Many of such jobs are scaled at lower wage and more at risk from broad changes such as automation and digitization. Remote work thus risks accentuating inequalities at a social level.
However, it is argued that there are countless tools to communicate remotely to counteract this. One being regular remote team launches and virtual events that create an open inclusive environment where people feel safe sharing about their remote work life such as sharing fun pictures through Slack. Additionally, remote working has allowed individuals to have more flexibility over when, where and how they earn their living. Thus, promoting a better work life balance, less commute stress, location independence, positive environmental impacts, increased productivity, and performance. From an employer’s perspective, they can hire quality employees from all over the world. Therefore, reducing the need for office space, improved inclusivity, and increased motivation. Ultimately, remote working can often have their own set of difficulties, but the rewards of being able to hire talent from around the world can be deeply worthwhile.
