Still, as vaccinations roll out globally, employees can’t shake the feeling of uncertainty. A separate study by Springer has found that software professionals on work-from-home setups are “experiencing diminished emotional wellbeing”. Part of their fears is the possibility of being discriminated against should their productivity drop at any point during the pandemic.
What then can companies do to show support while keeping their momentum?
It’s not just physical borders that will be diminished; time zones, too. 61.37% of ASG’s respondents are already finding it easier to work across time zones, with 39.71% nodding to the efficiency of multi-continental teams. This makes companies more than ready to include offshore recruitment in their hiring practices. Professionals in the Philippines have long been sold on the idea of fully remote work, as it frees them from urban traffic which yearly eats over 200 of their hours in commute.
As you put your and your people’s needs first, you end up raising a software team that’s better equipped to battle uncertainty—pandemic or not.
