Toward Work-from-Anywhere Future to Anywhere Anytime Workplace. Like it or not, or whether your employer, regardless of corporation to government sectors, you have gone through the COVID-19 pandemic, the first 2 years, include various forms of lockdowns and work from home.
Suddenly, remote working, instant virtual web meetings become instantly accepted anywhere within the globe. For knowledge-based organisations have the least impact, as knowledge workers continue to deliver high levels of productivity regardless of remote or work in office, even before the COVID-19 pandemic. They are long before they already practice global virtual team work. The real impact is for the rest, to start to experience productivity gains, geographic flexibility and get instance virtual meetings with everyone or concurrently work on the project in the whiteboard and discussion or brainstorming to get things done.
The transition from work from home (WFH) to work from anywhere (WFA) is reality. Everyone needs to cope and adapt for the change. The mentality is shifting away from everyone needing to come together in the office to do work, to virtually being connected to get things done, with the help of modern remote working and digital workplace technology and solutions.
The coming challenge the world will be facing is are all remote or majority remote organisation is the ideal and best organisation structure for the future now? In another world, the transition toward Work from anywhere (WFA).
Just like always we said, COVID-19 crisis is the accelerator for change. A large-scale transition or transformation is coming, some sort of adoption of work-from-home (WFH) policies is picking up. In fact, modern smartphones are capable of performing various tasks, aka mobile office workplace on the go. Be it to receive email, notification, attend web meetings, create documents, work on spreadsheets, prepare for the presentation and running various web applications with the mobile web browser interface is just as capable as the desktop or laptop. The world will transit toward a hybrid workplace, allowing said at least one work day remote from anywhere eventually to gain acceptance by most places within the planet.
For organisations, if you have yet to plan and expand and cater for the work from anywhere initiative, it is the time to think and take action.
