Is the Caribbean calling?

It’s been two-plus years since remote work went mainstream and, dare we say, the BLOOM IS OFF THE ROSE. 🥀

Of course, flexibility is a huge benefit, and there are plenty of professionals who still very much prefer to work from home (or anywhere with an internet connection, for that matter) at least part of the week.

But it turns out that a 30-second commute and yoga pants-friendly dress code don’t make up for some sticky issues that still hinder remote workers. Like burnout and a general sense of disconnection.

If companies want to make remote and hybrid work viable for their employees — some research shows remote and hybrid teams tend to be more productive and cost-effective — they’re going to need to continue reimagining the way they do business (especially their hiring processes) and continue investing in solutions that foster team collaboration and connectivity.

Also? Brace yourself, this is going to ruffle some feathers… Some positions simply won’t lend themselves to a remote work setting. It will be up to business leaders to make sure that employees who are required to work on-site feel included, safe, and valued.
