It is my great pleasure to express my greetings for all the members of BJA.
Working from home has been a trending topic on the internet since March 2020, for reasons we all know so well. For Yamagata Europe, home office has been included in our policy for years. But even when we will be allowed to leave our forced COVID-19 home office regime, a few questions will remain. How will we work when everything is safe again? And what will be the role of the office in the future?
Yamagata Europe employees have been able to work from home for more than 10 years already. When we introduced this, people especially appreciated avoiding the long commuting time and being able to be there for their families, for example in the after-school rush. Sure, there was also opposition against the idea of WfH (our acronym for Working from Home) back then. Some people feared that work would intrude into the private sphere. Others thought they needed an office as an environment where they could be productive. And there was the fear of lack of central control over employee performance.
