In preparing for this month’s update, I reviewed my August 2019 blog for a little inspiration. I found many of the things I presented following my accident to be true today in the midst of a pandemic. The focus being holding your employees accountable and having them taking on more responsibility. This may be true even more so than a year ago.
Although our offices are open, employees have the option of working remotely and several are taking advantage of this opportunity. We’ve seen increased efficiency and fewer distractions, but this comes at the expense of lack of social interaction within the offices and reliance to be a self-starter. While some can handle working alone, many enjoy coming to the office, working in an office environment and may even appreciate a little nudging or prodding along the way. Additionally, having an extra set of eyes to review documents and appeals can be very helpful.
I am certainly enjoying the aspects of working remotely, but this could be a direct correlation to this coinciding with spring and summer. I wonder if my thoughts will change as the days get cooler and shorter? Will we be able to effectively implement marketing strategies and long-term goals in this type of environment or does the daily interaction help support the big picture? These are things that keep me awake at night and I would be interested if anyone would like to share their thoughts and what they are seeing in their respective workplaces.
Speaking of work…
