Shift nomenclature of 'remote work'
Remote

Work Practices
When we use the term 'remote' work we push against diversity of locations and inclusion of those not physically located in the defined and central location. Remote means far or not connected and we are certainly not that in the world of technology we live in. Shifting to "distributed work" (see Matt Mullenweg's work at Word Pres), just defining a colleague's geographic location (I'm working from NJ or I am working from TX) and or simplifying to "I'm working at the organization's Center City Philadelphia location" or "I'm flexibly working from downtown San Francisco today."

Pay people a monthly stipend to cover basics in life so that they are intrinsically motivated to show up and perform. Workers become more productive, and the experience of work is more satisfying.

Companies commit to onsite childcare as parents become wary of sending their children to larger daycare centers. Reducing exposure to additional social circles, reliability and convenience of onsite care will increase retention and engagement of parents.

Companies will take advantage of recruiting talent who can work from home to improve diversity.
Recruiting
Remote
Inclusion
Companies face big challenges recruiting for diversity when the total addressable market is small in their target markets, usually close to their big offices. Focusing diversity recruiting efforts on the markets where the diversity already lives will allow for quicker diversity hires and encourage more local investments in cities and schools that don't get the attention of big tech/big employers today.

Written and asynchronous video communication will become more important

Working remotely inherently leads to small communication gaps that accumulate over time. Being able to communicate effectively with words and asynchronous video will become a sought-after skillset.

Support the rise of 21st century 'collective' worker influence models (new normal unions)
Benefits
Inclusion
Employee Experience
Our [US] society is among the least supportive of worker-communities of all developed countries. We tend to label everything as socialist or communist. Balancing a businesses commitment to stockholders with an emphasis on creating a community among the businesses' workers to support their sentiment and regards for one another will be of increasing interest for many as a 'best place to work' post Covid in anticipation of the next black swan event. This would suggest 'worker council' involvement in business decisions, pay equality, emphasis on a servant leadership style of management

Open offices become a way of the past. Individual workspaces are reimagined to allow for more privacy and new health standards. How do you create community in common areas that enable safety and connection?

Create shorter-term employment models
Recruiting
Remote
Performance
Work Practices
Employee Experience
With more employees working remotely (in roles that support it), talent will be more fluid now that the traditional considerations that had to align (i.e. commute, relocation/location) are no longer a factor. Offset this with one-year tours of duty (akin to LinkedIn's model) with clear outcomes and mutually-additive value for the company and employee.

Projects and take-home work will play a much larger role in decision making during the recruiting process.
Inclusion
Recruiting
Data
Companies will have to adapt their interviewing practices to involve more work-sample tests if they want to make accurate hiring decisions, and this will promote more inclusive hiring processes. The companies that don’t adapt will over-emphasize video-conference interviews and their process will be riddled with even more bias than before.

Gig/Project Based Work
Work Practices
Employee Experience
Performance
The design of the organization should emerge as an evolutionary model where work roles become more fluid and experimentation happens regularly. Work roles are more project based focusing on creation of teams of teams to foster collaboration, networking, individual competency and org capability building. This also allows for a higher degree of work and role customization which could support acceleration of innovation, time to market, market differentiation.

Belonging
Culture & Values
Employee Experience
Inclusion
With less physical contact, companies need strategies to make their people feel part of something greater. A sense of belonging is critical to high-performance. People who feel like they belong to their team and business dedicate discretionary energy and attention to the business. Organisations should define a clear DNA (values and expected behaviours) and rituals to keep people close to one another and to the business. They should leverage technology to make company information easily available and collaboration tools leveraged consistently across the organisation. Adapting on-boarding to enable the above for new employees is key too.

Reimagining the role of 'manager'
Performance
Work Practices
Employee Experience
The typical role of 'manager' in knowledge-based orgs is increasingly complex and difficult to perform. As well as the basic mechanics of management (from hiring to firing), we've loaded mgrs up with more tasks as progressive people and culture practices have taken hold (cultural ambassadors, wellbeing advocates, inclusive leadership, distributed teams etc) - usually on top of producing their own individual results as well. This is a great time to parse out the constituent parts of 'future management' to reimagine how these get delivered effectively. I suspect it would look significantly different to today.

Develop employee privacy protections
Remote
Performance

Culture & Values
Data
Employers need to know how their employees are performing, but monitoring key strokes, active screen time, screen recordings and the like is not the way forward for remote work and can be an invasion of privacy. Employers should hire employees who they trust to perform a given role at a predetermined acceptable level of quality. Using metrics based on work achieved rather than personal work style is key here.
