I think businesses and organizations can make use of the three simple framing questions 1) where are we now, 2) where do we want to be and 3) how do we get there to plan a deliberate and thoughtful way forward. My sense is that different situations / projects would have different answers / outcomes. Furthermore, I think any activity requiring physical presence is subject to a process review and possible redesign asking why is the physical presence required, can the outcome be achieved using a remote means, and at what cost or loss in productivity or other. This would allow for deliberate and thoughtful decisions to be made. Finally, for organizations that allow choices between office and remote working, reward and recognition needs to be applied in unbiased manner and visibly demonstrated as such.
