The coronavirus pandemic, which has been affecting all over the world for months, has changed all humanity's daily lives. We now attach more importance to our health and hygiene than before. The pandemic affected not only the daily lives of people but also their working processes. Everyone from students to employees had to put aside old habits and adapt to the new order. The new ways of working, which are planned to be implemented until overcoming this process, seem to have been adopted by many companies, with the pandemic taking longer than expected.
The number of corporate companies that say that they will not return to the old order at the end of the epidemic and always continue the new working order is relatively high. Humanity seems to be giving a new direction to the future while trying to get used to this unique situation that no one has experienced before and seeking solutions to the problems encountered. We have compiled for you how the ways of working have changed in our country and the whole world. We wish everyone a pleasant reading and healthy days.
Remote and Flexible Working Models
Working from home or office with flexible hours is almost unaccustomed to many people. Although companies have invested in this working model in the past years and have given their employees the right to work flexibly, unfortunately, their number is deficient. So the home-working model or flexible working hours that suddenly entered our lives can be a sudden development for many of you.
Working from home may have appealed to you like everyone else in the early days. In this way, you may be happy thinking that you will spend more time with your family, that all the time you spend on the road and in traffic will be left to you, you will experience less stress and organize your working environment as you wish. While some people adapt to this system very quickly and continue to work efficiently, others say that working from home makes them inefficient.
Things may be entirely out of control for you, especially if you have other individuals working at home or children who have to receive distance education. But if you learn how to make working from home more effective and efficient, you will find that everything will be much easier. For this, you must create an order and take care not to go out of this order, at least during the first two weeks of getting used to.
More Efficient Use of Technology
With the spread of the coronavirus and our quarantine, technological tools and digital formations have become an integral part of our lives. The digital platforms used by home workers for in-team communication have suddenly gained value, and we have used online interview applications that we have not even heard of before.
We are in the days when we live our business meetings and even our socializing habits at work, leaving behind traditional communication models through the virtual environment. Some companies that want to make communication between employees and managers continuous and efficient have also increased their technology investments.
New Rules in Business Life
Many companies, who think that working from home is not suitable for every profession and every employee, prefer the hybrid working model instead of working entirely remotely. That means that you will be working from home on certain days of the week and rotating at the office on certain days. Whether this model eliminates the risk of getting coronavirus is debated. But at least it is more useful for those who think that working from the office will be more efficient. These days, companies are working on the changing world order and the new business rules that come with it.
Besides, hygiene rules, which affect our daily lives entirely, have become the main workplace rule. Working models with social distancing and non-contact technologies are being adopted to avoid the contact working order as much as possible. Practicing social distance and working in a mask has become a habit.
It is unknown whether all these habits will end with the invention of the coronavirus vaccine, but research shows that many people develop an infectious disease phobia. It seems that companies and employees, especially those used to flexible and hybrid working models, will continue to adopt this style as a working model in the "new world order."
