Remote workers’ guide to team dynamics
Endless remote working can make employees lose empathy. Here are a few things employees and organizations can do to ease things
NEW DELHI :
Ninad Kawale, 37, enjoys his job as a data analyst, is a devoted father, and loves writing music. Things were slightly far from perfect four years ago when Kawale was spending about five hours daily commuting to his office and back. Eventually, he worked out a remote working deal with his then employer, an arrangement that he has with his current employer too. “Remote working brought back my inspiration for proactive work, writing music, and most importantly, opened up time I could spend with my daughter," says Kawale, senior manager, analytics and consumer insights (APAC) at Sony Music Entertainment. Now, he says, he will find it tough to give up this arrangement. One reason why Kawale is able to work remotely is because his current team is largely based in Hong Kong and Singapore. “In any case, I am a remote worker. Whether I am in an office or at home, the team dynamics are not impacted," he explains.
