The most trending HR employee contract model now includes “Work from ANYWHERE” apart from the usual “Permanent | Full-Time | Causal | Part-Time | etc.” This model essentially allows employees to choose whether they want to be full time at the Office | Home | Office and Home.
Spotify is the latest tech company which has recently adapted this model. The company will adhere to implementing extreme flexibility even around locations, giving employees the freedom to even choose the country and city where they would like to work from. The company has decided to provide co-working space memberships for its employees who choose to work remotely and at the same time desire for a dedicated workspace. Hence, giving them the best of both worlds!!!
We are seeing more and more big-scale companies adopting the remote work model as a more permanent and concrete option due to adversities caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. This framework will give more assurance to companies in leading a more persistent growth.
With this dynamic shift in workplace concept, companies are at the forefront of reassessing their office spaces across the globe for increased perseverance, flexibility and prosperity to ensure that all of their operations, regardless of the situation, goes on unobstructedly, comfortably and efficiently. The main objective of this new employee roadmapping approach is to ensure that employees in the uncertain long-run have a permanent & backup place where they can perform with focus, collaborate without obstruction, innovate and recreate and the possibility of this should prevail whether at an office/home desk, in a conference room, a cafe or a co-working space.
Spotify is not the only tech company, there are other significant companies like Microsoft, Salesforce, Twitter, Square, etc. who have considered and implemented this dynamic employee contractual setting. Salesforce recently announced to let its employees choose whether they would consider coming into the office again? While Simultaneously emphasizing that the 9-to-5 workday routine is dead. Square and Twitter are letting employees work from home #wfh FOR GOOD! And lastly Microsoft also offered its workers high flexibility to work from home.
As evidently seen that we have a rising number of companies who are proactively considering remote work as a more permanent option due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I think it is time that all companies should prepare for the same and evolve with the changing time. The world is not the same anymore. In this world only the digitally adept will survive. @CloudPloys we help companies in upscaling and proofing their business against such adversities, so please reach out for a consultation and a relaxed discussion!
