What’s hot?     

McKinsey and company designers spoke with dozens of people around the world about their challenges working from home, their financial concerns and the psychological and emotional toll of the COVID-19 pandemic.*

So what?         

The results of their interviews revealed three actions that organizations can take to help employees bridge the work from home gap.

What to do?

To level the work-from-home (WFH) playing field, McKinsey recommends:

  • Provide furniture and equipment allowances, coworking memberships, resources for broadband enhancement, ergonomic consultation, and more.
  • Provide the right tools andtraining – go beyond the typical tools like video conferencing and communication to productivity and time-management tools.
  • Build more workplace connectivity and social structures – learn employees social needs and “invent the social fabric and social serendipity of the socially distanced world” to fill those needs.
