Before the coronavirus pandemic, approximately over two-thirds of US businesses provided some form of remote work opportunity (at least occasionally) for their employees.
Whats different about the COVID-19 remote working situation is that its one of “surviving versus thriving,” according to Kristen Skender, SVP of brokerage at Jimcor Agencies.
Presenting a WSIA education webinar entitled Leading Remote Workers, Skender commented: “This is not normal remote work. This is remote work — the extreme edition.”
The challenges vary based on an individuals unique situation. For some, the primary challenges of working from home might be loneliness or a lack of motivation. For others, it might be navigating the tricky balancing act between 24/7 childcare, home schooling and successfully executing work responsibilities.
