Why Trust Is Critical for the Future of Remote and Hybrid Work
Remote and hybrid work have emerged as the new reality for organizations around the world.
Remote and hybrid work have emerged as the new reality for organizations around the world. A recent EY study reveals that nine in ten respondents want flexibility in where and when they work, and researchers at Stanford University say that 20 percent of full workdays will be supplied from employees at home after the pandemic ends, compared with just 5 percent pre-pandemic. Yet there remains a deeply rooted perception among managers that remote workers are not as motivated as their non-remote colleagues.
This leads to a pressing question for the future of work: how can employers preserve the benefits of hybrid and remote arrangements while ensuring managers feel supported and teams run effectively?
The answer comes down to one crucial element—trust.
