Workers Don’t Want to Go Back to the Office

Reading Time: 1 minute

I know this doesn’t really reflect what every worker thinkgs & feels but now that many people are getting a taste of working-from-home (WFH) for extended period of time, some are loving it. (I know I do!)

But for many managers and bosses, they’re pulling their hair out and worried about productivity flatlining.

What WFH has exposed is how we measure staff performance.

In many cases (especially larger enterprises and established companies), you could be measuring staff performance on the WRONG metrics.

When people are working in the office, it’s easy to make it look like you’re busy.

But when you really look at it, how often are people actually performing productive work at the office? (Let’s be honest here).

Instead of measuring performance on “hours at the office”, we should start to review what results/outcomes are actually being produce by staff and measuring performance based upon these outcomes instead of “people hours”.

After all, if we’re measuring performance based upon “hours”, then it actually punishes people who are efficient at their jobs and rewards inefficiency.
