Temporary Suspension of Nonessential Business Travel Memo
Frankly, novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is not a reason we want to be talking about remote work. We’ve hesitated entering into the now trending conversation, as it’s a serious issue that is affecting lives and livelihoods across the globe. However, as we see companies turning to remote work as a potential solution to help the stem the spread of the infectious disease, we have additional concerns:
- At a company level: Only 30% of business leaders feel their organization is well prepared for the rise in remote work.
- At a leadership level: Less than 10% of employees strongly agree that their leaders have the skills needed to thrive in the digital economy.
- At a worker level: Even before this sudden shift, 38% of remote workers received no training on how to work remotely.
