Reaction Gauge: Remote Work
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, many organizations transitioned to remote work. Some already had the infrastructure in place to make the switch, but many didn’t and had to figure it out on the fly. Prepared or not, working remote for an extended period of time can be difficult when you’re used to working face to face.

What are some of the challenges of remote work? What are some benefits? How has it changed the way you communicate and interact with your coworkers/managers/employees? How has it impacted productivity?

Hi Lindsay,

Thanks for the post. This is something a lot of professionals out there would want to untwine.

Honestly, I am not a fan of Work from Home (WFH), or remote working in the first place. Although, the initial few months did feel nice to be near family for a longer period of time, and working from the comfort of my home, and having the liberty to do other chores that dont usually get your time, eventually, the feeling of meeting your colleagues for a face-to-face healthy discussion, being able to concentrate better in the work environment started to fill through.

The fact of the matter is in the long run, productivity drops by atleast 15-20%, due to n number of factors.

Its been almost a year now that I am working from home, and it is getting increasingly frustrating for me. Personally, I would jump at the thought of returning back to the workplace.
