The Future of Work is Remote

These past years, remote work has become a thing. A real one. And it is even more true today, given the recent events. Indeed, many employees got a taste of the forbidden fruit during the last sanitary crisis we all faced. And they might have actually started enjoying it. A lot. But what about companies?

Till today, remote work is seen like the last resort by most of the companies. It's especially true when you don't come from the startup scene. Of course, some exceptions exist and show awesome results. But they are still black sheeps.

Why such a perception of remote work?

I know by experience that remote friendly companies face several challenges:

  • Keep a good collaboration flow between everyone is a daily challenge. Real-time collaboration can be a solution to maintain a good communication within the company.
  • Stay social : People working remotely might experience loneliness. Yes, this is a reality. Quick & smooth real-time talks can help fight this.
  • Keep the momentum going : asynchronous tools such as Slack or Notion are awesome to share information within a company, but they do not help to keep the motivation & excitement on a daily basis.

 

So today I can assert that the reason why remote work is not widely adopted yet is not because of the lack of trust, as many may say.

It's about processes, flows & results.

The question is : how to tackle these challenges the right way and enhance the adoption of remote working? How to solve companies problems, so they offer an alternative to their collaborators? How to offer better collaboration, better connection, better productivity, and a real sense of belonging?

These are the real challenges to overcome in order to ease a massive adoption by companies.

If we succeed doing this, we'll kill this manager we hate when he asks us 10 times a day what we are currently doing the only day you worked from home in the month because you had to.


“Remote work is not a lonely path. Actually, and as often, human is at the core of the success of remote work.”


By offering a product that put human interactions at its core, we'll show to companies what we all see: remote work is a tremendous thing, and can be even better than working from an office.

This decade will deeply transform ideas on how work is done. Remote will take a next level, and we make our mission to be an active part of it. Because at the end of the day, we all want the same thing: work differently, in a better way.

You can join us to Knock to experience how remote work should be for every companies.

If you don't work remotely yet but would love to, share this article to the decision taker of your company. Who knows? Maybe (s)he'll give it a try, and you'll be able to work in pyjama soon.
