Pros and cons of Remote Working
A new trend of working during the covid era
During the covid situation where the pandemic is spreading all over it makes traveling outside the house riskier. Therefore, many companies have turned to Work From Home instead for everyone’s safety. The way of working has begun to change and it leads to a new trend of working that is gaining popularity right now. That is remote working that only asks for technology and communication equipment. You can work from anywhere in the world. Including a flexible working style and can produce results of work that are as good as working in the office as well. However, remote working also has advantages and disadvantages that many companies still have to adapt to.
The obvious advantage of working remotely is the flexibility of working. Which employees can manage the time to work assigned by themselves and just complete the task within the specified time is enough. Flexibility also includes having the freedom to choose where to work. Some people like to work at a coffee shop or some people like to work in the bedroom. In addition, the advantage of Remote Working is that employees do not have to waste time traveling to work. Getting to work in the morning is a nightmare for many office workers because having to wake up early in the morning to avoid traffic jams causing many people to get tired when they go to the office and may result in low performance. Therefore, Remote Working from home will help employees not waste time traveling. Plus, there is enough time to rest before starting work. As for the advantages of the company with remote working, it will save the cost of office expenses such as electricity and water bills. Which originally may have to pay a lot of money each month but if working 100% from home it can save a lot of money.
The obvious disadvantage of Remote Working is the lack of interaction with colleagues because they can only communicate online, making the relationship not as close as when meeting at the office. Plus, the working atmosphere is different as well. Anyone who likes to talk to their colleagues or likes the atmosphere of working in an office may not like this type of working style. And many places such as restaurants, coffee shops are not allowed to sit inside the shop. It makes employees have limitations in choosing a place to work, so they have to work only at home. It is not that everyone’s home or residence is always good to work. Some people may live in houses next to the construction site or condos with limited space. An environment that is not suitable for work will result in employees’ stress and work more difficult. It also makes the work done may not be as efficient as it should be.
Therefore, if any company wants to adopt the remote working trend, they may need to explore the needs of their employees and look at the limitations of every employee. To find out how to work remotely that is most effective and suitable for everyone. The example of global giants companies that have turned to remote working, such as Twitter, announced last year that all employees can work from home for the rest of their lives, even after the covid situation is over, Twitter has adopted a remote working model from March 2020 until the present. Which is the period when the covid situation is spreading. The results of Twitter’s remote work have been satisfactory. However, the company still has offices for employees who need to work at the company.
It can be seen that trends in work tend to change depending on the situation that occurred during that time. In the future, we may see new trends in work. However, one thing every employee and company should have is adaptation. So the company will not lag behind others and use it for the benefit of the organization as much as possible
