It’s simple, we have to reinvent the home-office as the hub of ergonomics. That is the only way to greet 2022.
When the call for change comes en-masse, then it doesn’t take long for transition to unfold. Something similar is being observed in the corporate world where employees are now vouching for working-from-home-office (WFH). It’s expected that in 2022, a majority of leading corporate heavyweights will make the home-office their specialty. According to a vox pop, employees feel that WFH opens new vistas of productivity as there’s no need to fight the agonising traffic snarls that hamper timely office-arrivals. Secondly, WFH, according to employees, is more relaxing as compared with the regular office as it allows them to interact with their folks.
The other reason for the home-office being highly preferred in 2022 is the fact that employees have become habituated to it in the previous two years, 2020 and 2021. The new perception of the home-office as a mini haven of comfort and productivity was stoked by this reality. Now we have arrived at a critical juncture where employees have begun to equate productivity and profitability with WFH arrangements. In fact, there are many news stories doing the rounds on the internet about WFH being the preferred mode of working by employees.
What we must not forget is the fact that though 2022 is being perceived as the year of revival and growth, the risks of the pandemic haven’t abated completely. The latest variant named Omicron lurks around every nook and corner. Undeniably, employees and corporations understand that the best way to mitigate the risk of being infected is a home-office (WFH). However, as much as we are willing to embrace the WFH arrangements, we should be equally prepared for this paradigm shift wholeheartedly. That’s because change, adopted without preparation can be counterproductive.
