The corona crisis requests for completely new approaches and solutions to professional interaction. How will the daily working life look like? Does my employer have a concrete plan? In addition, we observe with a somewhat anxious eye the still high infection figures in some places. No one knows how long the design goal of "distance", realised through virtuality or thinned-out office space, will accompany us for reasons of infection.
NEW WORK – just a hype? This is not to be expected, because while video conferencing and working at home were the exception before the pandemic, both are now part of people's everyday lives. The last few months have shown very convincingly how extensively work can be done from other locations. The extent and speed of the implementation of remote working was and is unexpectedly high.
Develop a digital working culture
Spatial distance requires a consistent confrontation with virtual vicinity and one's own communication behavior and perception preferences. If flexible forms of work are to really work, it must be ensured that there is intensive communication across all media possibilities. It is important that time for encounters is granted and valued and that the performance of "invisible" employees is also noticed and seen. The move away from a culture of presence cannot be achieved overnight. It must be practised in daily behavior and made visible.
From the "normal case office" to a hybrid, flexible and sustainable working world - is this the NEW NORMAL?
Corona actually will change the view to offices as the main workplace and the basic requirement of every employee to “go to work” is cleary shaken. In the meantime, there are several studies from which, in cooperation with companies, employees and service providers, a clearly positive balance emerges on the subject of home office. This concludes that home office can be realised in a bigger scale without any disadvantages arising from this. The same applies to the extent to which business trips can be handled virtually in the future, e.g. via video conferences.
