With the advent of generative AI like ChatGPT, we are on the cusp of realizing the full potential of remote and hybrid work by reducing – while not eliminating – the benefits of office visits.
the question « do we really need to go to the office? » is something many employees are asking in the face of the leadership at major companies like Amazon, Apple, Disney, Starbucks, and JP Morgan mandating three or more days a week of office-based work. Employees are adamant that they are doing their jobs effectively at home, and data supports the improved productivity of remote work. But many leaders feel concerned about a range of issues, from problematic communication and coordination to cybersecurity, which they feel remote work undermines.
However, with the advent of generative AI like ChatGPT, we are on the cusp of realizing the full potential of remote and hybrid work by reducing — while not eliminating — the benefits of office visits. AI is not just a futuristic buzzword; it’s a transformative force that’s reshaping the workplace and redefining the meaning of work itself.
I talk to five-ten leaders each week about hybrid and remote work, and in recent months, our conversations have centered on how generative AI can help us unlock the full power of remote and hybrid workforces. That includes enabling more effective information sharing, enhancing communication and collaboration, improving productivity and efficiency, supporting knowledge management and skill development and ensuring security and privacy.
