COVID-19 has triggered a massive shift to virtual work that may change the office forever. Virtual work is the future.

COVID-19 has triggered a massive shift to virtual work that may change the office forever. Virtual work is the future of work.

The reality of work today has changed:

* A quarter of virtual work settings are all-virtual.
* Employees work virtually and in their native time zone.
* Flexible and zero commute time are added employee benefits.
* Employers experience increased productivity, efficiency, and employee morale.

Yet, enabling a virtual workforce is not “business as usual.” There are critical differences in managing in-office and working remotely.

* Online collaboration tools are no substitute for co-presence when communication, problem-solving, and creativity are called for.
* Organizational culture is more felt and experiences rather than articulated.
* Interactions are through body language, emotions, and embodied experiences, all must different in a virtual space.
* Increased importance for managers to call attention to and acknowledge aspects of organizational culture that are on display and why that matters.
