Worklife: This one and a half years as a remote worker who had a will, (you may have tasted or already the very of) returning to the arrival work might be very.
It’s not always a concern that working hours will be longer (rather, working hours may be shorter ), but rather that you will lose the discretion you gained while working remotely during the pandemic.
North Carolina is a professor of strategy Antony Le pull Noor membership of the University of Kenan-Flagler Business School Arvind Malhotra Dr. is, points out in this way in the Worklife BBC.
Without someone to monitor, you can decide how you want to work. “Small things” such as a short walk in the afternoon or 10 minutes of putting dishes in the dishwasher can make a big difference.
So how can the self-discretionary powers acquired during remote work be maintained in the office?

Talk to your boss as early as possible.
Some companies have announced policy changes, such as the ability to work remotely one day a week prior to employees returning to work.
However, many companies are expected to return to work and work as if there was no pandemic, as in 2019.
In any case, be clear about what part of your remote work you want to maintain (the feasible part) and discuss it with your boss.
I think the sooner the discussion is, the better (ideally, it would be possible to discuss it before returning to work).
Malhotra Dr., says as follows in the BBC.
If you give up on where and when you work, you’ll need to talk to your boss and negotiate to be flexible in what you want to do.
If you go to work and work the way you are told, you may be able to do creative and innovative work and have a higher level of discretion.
Maintain self-discretion at a fine work level
Certainly, we may not have been able to negotiate to change the office dress code to “pajamas are also ants” or to allow remote worklife forever.
However, according to Malhotra Dr., how to maintain self-discretion There are others, especially Malhotra Dr.” fine work level” is possible in this dimension.
Whether you were aware of it or not, this was probably what you were doing from home.
“We had time to do what we were supposed to do, and we had a place and time to think,” he told the BBC.
I think this kind of habit is necessary even after returning to the office. You have the discretion to regain it during working hours from 9 am to 5 pm.
For example, you can (as much as possible) avoid having consecutive meetings, or you can reserve a few minutes in advance somewhere in the day that you know will be a little refreshing.
It’s not like working from home, but at least you’ll feel that you have some control over the day.
