It’s easy in the age of COVID-19 to hear people talking about how Work-at-Home will be the new normal. Remote workers are coming out of the woodwork touting how everyone will soon be embracing the “future of work”. Personally, I have been working remotely off and on since the 1990’s. Telework itself has been around since the 1970s – usually spurred on by a natural disaster, pandemic, or war (see this blog article by the father of teleworking Jack Nilles). But for each of those increases, telework has failed to catch on as a “permanent” way of doing business for many companies. Some jobs aren’t particularly suited for it, some people aren’t suited for it, and some organizations don’t have the right culture to sustain it. Most likely, telework for your organization or some of your people is temporary. So how do you set it up, sustain it for an unknown period of time, and then wind it back to a new normal?
