In the midst of widespread societal efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, companies across industry sectors are moving employees from office environments to work from home setups to promote social distancing. This unprecedented global shift toward remote work puts a new strain on companies’ existing infrastructures and policies.
In anticipation of these new challenges, companies across industry sectors should take the following steps:
Some companies may find peripheral benefits in moving toward a remote work model, and choose to continue supporting a remote workforce even when no longer necessary for public health reasons. In these cases, efforts and investments made to address the items listed above will pay dividends when leveraged for long-term implementation.
