The Bumpy Road Back to the Office
This was the fourth discussion of the Australian CCO Forum group since COVID-19 restrictions were put in place.
This was the fourth discussion of the Australian CCO Forum group since COVID-19 restrictions were put in place. It was a month since our previous discussion (called the road to the new normal) but many common issues remain. Back in late May people were saying that the office didn’t look that good and that is still true. In May concerns were expressed for line managers and that issue has remained. There is increasing acceptance of at-home work and the changes that has created.
The discussion topic for the meeting focused on what is working well, what do companies want to get back to and what needs to change. We’ve summarised some of our observations of the emerging state of play under two headings:
· Why no one is rushing back to the office and the plans that exist
- · How we are managing people in this new world
There were two common areas of discussion covered separately
· Bottling the speed of change
· The productivity conundrum
