Topic Remote working
long-term impact on collaboration,productivity, work-life balance and innovation
The developments in communications technologies over thelast 20 to 30 years, in both infrastructure and applications, partly driven bythe surge in social networks, has transformed the idea of being able to workanywhere at any time into a real option for many professional activitiesparticularly in a highly technical skilled environments.
This process has been turbo charged by the covid-19 globalpandemic and the need to confine.
The appearance of new variants has disrupted plans to returnto some level of pre-pandemic normality and forced companies to consider remoteworking longer term or even permanently to some level.
On September 9th 2021 a peer-reviewed study waspublished in the journal Nature Human Behaviour based on the activity of over60,000 US Microsoft employees on the effect of remote work on collaboration andcommunication over the first six months of 2020
Some of the key findings are
Overall, the Microsoft researchers contend that it is tooearly to fully assess the long-term impact of remote work.
This is just an example of the focus the working communityis placing on understanding the long-term effects of a shift to a moreprevalent remote working environment
The accelerated move to remote working has the potential to bothimprove and negatively affect our lives.
I would like your presentation and paper to focus on yourunderstanding of the main positive and negative aspects of this new remoteworking environment.
The presentation is teamwork. The paper is individual andyou may expand or even deviate from the ideas in the consensual presentationarguments. I particularly like out of the box thinking. You will not be wrong.If long term things turn out differently that is the beauty of the future, itis not set in stone.
Let me know if you have any questions or concerns, probablybest by email or catch me on zoom.
If you do want some guidance from me, what I would recommendis
1. Say what you are going tosay introduction and background (maybe history) to the topic
2. Say it I recommend arguingboth sides. If there were only one side, we would not be talking about it. Ifyou feel you are already leaning to one side but you dont understand the otherside well enough to argue their case you are not well prepared and you areprobably not making a balanced judgement
3. Say what you said Conclusion. This is where I recommend you do take a side and hopefully providesolutions that would allow the other side to live with your conclusion
Write a paper (individual) and presentation on the potentialethical issues that may arise in such an environment.
