Value of Trust: Small Amount Can Create a Strong Foundation

Value of Trust: Small Amount Can Create a Strong Foundation

Many employers still believe that their employees cannot perform their best work unless they are physically present in the office. However, research from around the world has shown that greater flexibility in remote and hybrid work arrangements can actually lead to a significant boost in productivity. Despite this, some companies are returning to an office-only policy.
While it is understandable that employers may be seeking to return to normalcy after the challenges of the past few years, this decision could actually be counter-productive. Hybrid workers often show improved morale, greater creativity, and better collaboration compared to pre-pandemic levels.

One approach that some businesses have taken to track employee performance is increased monitoring, but this can often have the opposite effect. Employees may feel like they are constantly being watched and monitored, leading to a lack of trust, demoralized teams, and a feeling of "us vs. them." It is important for businesses to understand their performance and find the right metrics to measure productivity, but this should be done in a way that does not make employees feel like they are simply a cog in a machine.
