Americans appear to have adapted to remote work exceptionally well during the Covid-19 pandemic. A recent national survey from Chubb found not only that productivity was up among those working from home, but also that nearly three-quarters of workers want to continue working remotely more frequently than they did before the shutdowns began.
These statistics don’t mean there weren’t speed bumps along the way, and study after study has looked at how to mitigate issues that have arisen as a result of the move to remote work. One company—Microsoft—decided to take a deep dive into how its employees were handling the myriad changes related to working from home, the results of which they shared with the Harvard Business Review in its seven-part series “The New Reality of WFH.”
Natalie Singer-Velush, Kevin Sherman, and Erik Anderson write about launching “an experiment to measure how the work patterns across our group were changing, using Workplace Analytics, which measures everyday work in Microsoft 365, and anonymous sentiment surveys. We didn’t know what we’d find, but we felt certain that it would help us, our partners, our customers, and other organizations navigate the phases of this shift.”
