Saving Productivity: Niki Fuchs in Tomorrow's FM
The ONS reported that Q1 this year saw a 3.1% year-on-year decline in productivity, with a further 2.5% decrease in Q2 and a 19.9% fall in output - the largest on record.
From declining productivity to rising levels of loneliness and the impacts of lost mentorship that simply can’t be recreated online, it is clear that remote working is not sustainable for the long-term.
In a recent comment piece for Tomorrow’s FM, OSiT Managing Director and champion of the office Niki Fuchs outlines the impacts of loneliness on wellbeing and performance, why tech cannot replicate collaboration and the impact of a critical lack of development opportunities for young people.
While an increase in distractions is often cited as a disadvantage of working from home, Niki argues that many workers are finding it more difficult to keep work from infiltrating other areas of their lives, and that a return to the office is now critical for workers, businesses and the economy as a whole.
