The new normal of working from home has definitely had it’s benefits, but also some drawbacks, and we’re having to adjust to this new way of functioning in our work environments. 

In 2019, only 4.1% of the US workforce was working remotely. Today that percentage has dropped back down from the 69% at the height of the COVID pandemic, but has settled and is holding steady at 42%, which is still a massive increase from just a couple of years ago. Since the majority of businesses and their employees are generally happy with this change, it’s important for all of us to understand and resolve the challenges that have risen from remote work. 

One of these challenges is a simple lack of trust. With anything new, it’s natural for humans to have initial trust issues, and this might be particularly poignant when it comes to trusting that the work is still getting done efficiently. Unfortunately, the new lack of trust has led to a rise in micromanagement, which is bad for everyone. 

One way to resolve these issues is to utilize AI technologies in standardized processes, such as managing payroll apps, creating schedules, and using time sheets. AI can help neutralize the trust issues in these and other tasks.
