Now that COVID cases have dramatically decreased, the majority of businesses, irrespective of their industry, are calling employees back to the workplace. While management want their staff back in the office, the majority of workers are still having difficulty getting to work each day. Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, is now discussing the culture of working from home. He claims that Microsoft managers want staff members to report to work since they think employees are lax while they are there. working from home. Microsoft employees feel otherwise.
As per a report coming from Windows Central, Nadella said that some bosses are skeptical of the work-from-home culture. “We have to get past what we describe as ‘productivity paranoia,’ because all of the data we have that shows that 80 per cent plus of the individual people feel they’re very productive — except their management thinks that they’re not productive,” the report quoted Nadella. “That means there is a real disconnect in terms of the expectations and what they feel,” he added.
The CEO of Microsoft mentioned a significant internal survey about the culture of working from home. According to the survey, Nadella reported that 87% of Microsoft employees believe working from home increases their productivity. Approximately 80% of Microsoft’s managerial layer believes that workers who work from home are less productive. At Microsoft, the debate over telecommuting is still going strong.
Nadella-headed Microsoft now permits a hybrid work environment in which employees are permitted to work 50% of the time from home and 50% in the office. Other tech firms, such as Google, Apple, and a few more are continually summoning their employees back to work. Additionally, these businesses are working harder to persuade them to bring people back to office premises.
