Item Type: MRP
Creators: Rucchin King, Robyn and Spry, Ainsley
Abstract:

This paper explores the current state, biases, and culture surrounding the experience of remote workers now and in the future; it provides insights into how organizations can successfully support leaders and employees within these complex team structures. It also attempts to address the wicked problem facing leaders and employees of large organizations as they work to build the infrastructure to support the growing needs of the blended (remote and colocated worker) workforce: How might we break the stigma of the remote worker and build trust between leaders and remote teams? Several solutions are proposed for consideration, prototyping and development, as well as additional areas of opportunity for further research.
