Almost overnight, millions of people who make up the American workforce were forced to adapt to a new reality in light of the COVID-19 pandemic: working from home (WFH). The current emergency situation is changing the landscape of the work environment for these employees as well as the employers tasked with managing them.

For many of our clients, WFH was already a normal course of business; as employers, they had existing flexible work arrangements that allowed employees to work from home. For these clients, perhaps little has changed in these arrangements except that the normal flow of business is changed, there’s added pressure for parents and caregivers, and business plans have slowed or pivoted.

Other employers may have allowed WFH on a very limited scale. For example, they allowed employees to work from home if sick but still able to work, employees had a doctor appointment in the middle of the day, etc. For these clients, the arrangement is now expanding, and there is a level of uncertainty about how to make these changes in a way that’s able to be consistent and conducive to business growth over the long term.

Finally, some employers were not prepared for this shift at all—they had no WFH policies in place, no experience with managing remote employees or leading teams remotely—and they are scrambling to figure out how to keep employees working—if they have the ability to do so. For these employers, this drastic change in the way business is done can be terrifying.
