Companies often think:
Employees under the radar
“Nearly three quarters (73 per cent) of
the UK ofﬁce workforce did not believe
there was complete trust when working
outside the ofﬁce.”
From a report by Microsoft for Anywhere
Working at the ofﬁce doesn’t always
mean you are being productive
Impromptu meetings, loud colleagues, gossip
all around the ofﬁce 😕
“People don’t need to be shackled to their desks to be productive or to
collaborate with their colleagues. Work should be a thing you do not a
place you go. Flexible working is more about choosing a location that
best suits your requirements to get the job done. This can mean working
from a variety of locations during the day, be that on the move, a shared
knowledge hub, a coffee shop, a remote ofﬁce or at home if need be.”
Dave Coplin, Chief Envisioning Ofﬁcer at Microsoft
Communication online is much harder
Learn a new way to adapt & communicate
Communication at the ofﬁce is easy
Main downside of Remote working
Fight lack of communication
