What Happens to Work-from-Home Jobs in a Post-COVID World?
  • Sharebar

Until just recently, most of us have hesitated to consider what commerce will look like in a post-pandemic world. After all, it’s been over two years since COVID-19 has changed our day-to-day work lives across the globe, and just as we think there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, yet another variant emerges that sets us back. But over the past few weeks, as COVID numbers around the world continue to decline, there does some to be some hope that it will in fact come to an end. This leads us to wonder what will happen to work-from-home jobs after COVID? Based on what several experts predict, we’ve developed our own vision for what commerce will look like once the threat of the pandemic is behind us.

Work-from-home jobs will increase: Instead of remote work declining in a post-COVID world, we believe that the number of work-from-home jobs will actually increase. There’s a simple reason for that: more and more employers and employees alike are recognizing the advantages of telecommuting. Workers enjoy a healthier work-life balance when working from home, not to mention the money saved in not having to commute back and forth to an office and reduced childcare expenses, for example. And employers appreciate lower overhead costs with regard to purchasing or leasing office space, not to mention less need to recruit and hire new employees due to contented workers who are happy to stay with companies that allow them the flexibility to work remotely.

Employers and employees will travel less: The work-from-home revolution that has taken place over the past two years has transformed more than just our day-to-day work routines. It has also changed the way we gather for meetings, training, conferences, etc. And when you stop to consider the amount of money that employers save by having their employees attend those meetings virtually via a video conferencing platform, you can easily understand the advantages of virtual meetings over face-to-face gatherings. We predict that this trend will only continue to increase in a post-pandemic environment. But cost savings aren’t the only advantage of traveling less – it also benefits the environment by reducing the carbon footprint of individuals who would otherwise be flying to conferences and meetings. And in a world that is increasingly concerned with global warming and its effects on the planet, the less we contribute to that problem, the better.

Employers will have a greater reliance on productivity measuring software: One of the reasons why remote work has been so readily accepted by business owners and managers is the availability of software that allows them to measure productivity levels of their workers no matter where they may be located. At MySammy, we’re proud to say that we were among the first to offer this capability to businesses. Long before COVID-19 resulted in an exponential increase in remote work, we developed our cloud-based software to enable managers to measure the productivity levels of their remote employees in a totally open, transparent way. Thanks to MySammy, you can rest assured that your telecommuting staff members are spending their time engaged in productive, work-related tasks – and you can do it without blocking websites or invading the privacy of your workers!
