  • It is an impressive feat that work email has managed to reign supreme as the most prolific and favoured communication tool in today’s digital working world, despite the emergence of arguably more functional alternatives like Slack, Yammer and MS Teams. Yet it may not be through active choice that email continues to dominate our working lives. Many academic studies have found that there is a certain addictive, habitual component to our use of work email that might be difficult for us to change.


  • In view of the health context, the organisation of work will continue to be phygital (physical & digital) for the coming year. The opportunity is open to you to discover the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in 2022.


  • Just 5% of employed people in the UK worked from home in 2019. The onset of the pandemic and the overnight shuttering of offices during the first lockdown meant 47% of employees were doing the same in April 2020. Although returning to work in offices full time is now possible, the latest figures from May show 26% are still working from home while a further 11% are hybrid working: splitting their work time between the office and home.


  • After your day of teleworking, let yourself be seduced by the Phocaean city.


  • Looking for a change of scenery while working remotely? Do you want to spend some time in the sun and discover beautiful places to visit? The South of France is your teleworking destination! It has a wonderful climate with long warm summer days stretching through to September and October and incredible landscapes. Moreover, the sun of the French Riviera will allow you to disconnect and fully enjoy the sweetness of life.


  • COVID-19 has fundamentally changed our relationship with the office. After the enforced experiment of lockdowns pushing about 40% of the labour force into working from home, few of us want to return to the pre-pandemic status quo. Yes, we miss the sociability of the workplace, but surveys show at least three-quarters of us want the option to spend a few days working at home and a few days in the office. But what exactly is the right balance? read as well : It’s not just the isolation. Working from home has surprising downsides The experience of working from home has helped break down many of the prejudices that limited work flexibility prior to 2020. But there remain discernible differences in attitudes between workers and managers on this question. As Australia’s Productivity Commission notes in a September 2021 research paper: There are actual or perceived costs to working from home, such as reduced opportunities for collaboration and networking, reduced face-to-face interaction with managers, and consequences for long-term career prospects. That last point is of particular concern. A pre-pandemic study found fully remote workers, despite being 13% more productive, were only half as likely to be promoted as their colleagues who spent their time in the office. The reasons for this are likely complex – a combination of explicit attitudes and subconscious biases. Their persistence spells danger for post-COVID organisations. In particular they could disadvantage those with carer responsibilities, who are more likely to want greater flexibility. So how many days a week in the office is enough? How do we balance the desire of managers to bring people together with employee’s desire for greater flexibility? Preferred number of days working at home, by occupation Results from a survey of Australian workplaces during 2020 lockdowns. Institute of Transport and Logistic Studies, University of Sydney, CC BY Legacy management Some organisations are adamant that going back to the office all or most of the time is essential. Take, for example, Google. The Silicon Valley giant has won awards for its open corporate culture. Its products have facilitated as much as any company in the teleworking revolution. But in September Google said it would reduce the pay of its US employees choosing to work from home permanently. A company spokesperson justified this on the grounds Google had always paid employees according to “the local market based on where an employee works from”. But given the company’s long antipathy to remote work it’s hard to see this as anything other than a stick to pull workers back to the office. Choosing to work from home could reportedly cost some employees up to 25% of their salary. If this is the attitude at Google, just imagine what prevails in more conservative managerial cultures. Indeed it is largely managerial fears that have stymied the potential for greater work flexibility since technology made “teleworking” a possibility in the 1970s. read as well : 50 years of bold predictions about remote work: it isn’t all about technology For decades concerns about innovation and productivity have been cited as reasons workers must be in the office most of the time, despite research indicating there’s no reason we need to be in the office every day to maximise the benefits of collaboration. The lived experience of the pandemic has helped mitigate these concerns, but not completely. These attitudes are arguably associated with a “legacy” model of management – a model in which attitudes have failed to change along with the facts. Bundy clocks and other explicit forms of command and control may have been abandoned but there are still often unwritten expectations about such things as not leaving before the boss and putting in unpaid overtime being prerequisites to pay rises and promotions. The real question So the big question isn’t really about what’s the optimal mix of days in the office and at home. Experts agree there is no one-size-fits-all model for hybrid work. It should really depend on the context and individuals. Maybe it’s four days week in the office, maybe it’s one. The question is why managerial attitudes are taking so long to catch up to reality. There is now extensive research showing that employees are more effective and satisfied in their jobs when they have the flexibility to customise their work. This flexibility encompasses not just whether we work from home or the office a certain number of days, but also when we work, who we work with and what we are working on. After a career of doing things only one way, it seems many managers simply don’t know how to manage differently. Our organisations are not made up of one type of person and one type of job, something our management structures and organisational initiatives often ignore. Success in the post-COVID world will depend on thinking differently and creating a culture that embraces the opportunities this new model of work brings. That’s the conversation we need to have – wherever we are. This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons licence.

Global Wellness Day – June 11th, 2022
Jun 11 all-day

Global Wellness Day is an entirely not-for-profit day, a social project dedicated to living well. The purpose of Global Wellness Day is to ask the question, even if for just one day, “How can I live a healthier and better life?”, to direct the thoughts of both individuals and society towards “living well” and to raise awareness.

The main aims of the day are:

  • To recognize the value of our lives
  • To pause and think, even if for just one day of the year
  • To be free from the stress of everyday city life and bad habits
  • To make peace with ourselves
  • To raise awareness about living well and increase motivation, not just for today, but for the remaining 364 days of the year

 

Belgin Aksoy founded Global Wellness Day in 2012, bringing her vision to the world. Global Wellness Day is celebrated with only complimentary activities around the world with the slogan “One day you can change your whole life”.

In 2019, Belgin Aksoy was selected as the first non-French person to receive the “Personality of the Year” award by La Fédération des Professionnels du Bien-ētre.

À votre service !

Hybrid working in France, the future is now.

Hybrid working is becoming more and more common and more and more companies are opting for it. If you or your company work a lot with France, you could even choose to do remote work in France itself. Many have gone before you.

Either way, hybrid working in France is not something you just make up.

It is not enough to have a suitable working environment; the technical, logistical, administrative and psychological aspects of the hybrid worker must also be taken into account. Not to forget the “after-work” aspects: where to sleep, eat and relax.

This is why Remote United was created: a platform to CONNECT and ASSIST with the aim of giving you a pleasant and unique professional hybrid working experience in our beautiful region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (PACA).

To CONNECT, Remote United offers you a wide selection of coworking spaces in the PACA region, informs you about hybrid working events and allows you to broaden your knowledge about remote work.
