Devising a remote work culture with Yinka Opaneye, GameAnalytics
- 2 Min Read
Many viewed remote working as a short term fix, but it’s becoming ever more enmeshed in organizational culture. GameAnalytics’ Yinka Opaneye delves into how his company has positively built on this trend, and lays out key considerations for HR leaders in the time ahead.
COVID-19 has disrupted the world to a level not seen in generations. It is personally and professionally uncomfortable; people have been made to scrap their plans, limit their movements, worry for their careers, and much more. Businesses have been forced to transform their operations, drastically revise their forecasts, and work to build a comprehensive remote work culture.
Currently, it is the HR/people operations function that has seemed best suited to navigate organizations through this difficult time. However, over the course of months, many have discovered the benefits of working-from-home and a porous working schedule, which is the ability to mix both work and non-work activities through the day e.g. having mid-workday personal appointments or working flexible hours. In fact, many firms have wondered: do we really need the office?
Remote work culture is now becoming mainstream. According to PWC, pre-Coronavirus, 67 percent of employees worked less than one day a week remotely; now 72 percent have registered an interest and intent of working more than three days away from the office, even after the pandemic is over.
In this new podcast, HRD Connect meets with GameAnalytics’ Yinka Opaneye to delve into the details of building a true remote work culture. Where once it was a short term fix, now it’s becoming a long-term reality for professionals based around the world, driving questions around employee engagement, the pace of development, and what further changes may come about.
