The WFH conundrum

One of the few better outcomes from the pandemic has been work from home and the work-life balance it brings.

Some businesses are offering employees flexible hours, such as working two days a week in the office. Others are allowing workers to dictate their own schedule with some even allowing for no return to the office.

We’ve seen the shift of city office workers who are no longer required in the office moving to regional areas for a better and more affordable lifestyle.

Sounds great, right?

But with these city workers on their city wages in regional areas is destined to create a two-stream economy of ‘have’ and ‘have nots’ pushing house prices out of reach of the traditional locals.

As workplace flexibility increases, however, there are several questions employers will need to ask.

How do I remunerate workers moving to and living in regional areas?
Will skills and office relationships suffer from no face-to-face contact within teams?

Who will pay for the employee to attend face-to-face meetings in the city?
Will we see a skills exodus from the city?
What will the impact be on the regional location?

What are your thoughts on how to handle this two-stream economy and its long-term impact on your business?
