I have been speaking to many engineering managers over the last three months and quite naturally discussing the “working from home” scenario. It has been interesting.
Having worked over 8 years in recruitment, I have seen many organizations brand themselves as having a “flexible working environment”. Prior to recent events, this was a term thrown around far too casually and not executed as it was intended. Now we have had to take a leap of faith into new way of working, with some exciting results!
Some of the benefits recognized in my discussions include;
Most consultancies are driven by deliverables and project life cycles. In an outcomes-based environment, time spent in the office will not always translate into results. When we start managing people based on the value they provide and outcomes they deliver we allow for true flexibility.
I am excited to see what the future workplace looks like.
