Si le Luxembourg pratiquait déjà le télétravail avant la crise sanitaire du COVID-19, la grande majorité des organisations a dû s’adapter au travail à distance dans l’urgence… et beaucoup ont trouvé les solutions et mis en place les process nécessaires en peu de temps. Jour après jour elles se sont donné les moyens de réussir cette transformation et même des postes a priori non « télétravaillables » ont pu être transposés, pour réaliser tout ou partie des activités à distance. Beaucoup parlent d’un « retour à la normale », mais et si demain on télétravaillait encore ?

We have all been in crisis mode for months, is there a risk that too many people are currently concentrating on the immediate effects of the crisis and are losing sight of any potential advantages there may be? To quote André Gide “When a door closes, there is one that opens. Unfortunately, we spend so much time looking at the closed door that we don’t see the one that just opened.” This may be easy to state when so many different companies are facing the ruins of everything they built up over the past years, but without this kind of approach no country would ever have been resurrected after a war or another kind of catastrophe.
The recent crisis saw many workers obliged to change to digital working methods from one day to the next with very little time for preparation – in fact in many cases there was a scramble to even acquire the necessary hardware before shops were closed down for several weeks. Employees were literally thrown into a major change. In many cases, companies had probably previously rejected/postponed such changes on several occasions with the reasoning that the company’s processes and staff were not yet ready for such drastic change! All change specialists know that successful change needs to be well-prepared, so how could it be possible to achieve so much at such short notice? One answer is that under a crisis situation most people function in a sort of overdrive modus and rise to the moment, coping with challenges in the face of which they would normally have paled. Here the word to note is “coped”; they adapted, they fitted in, they showed great flexibility, but that does not necessarily mean that the outcome remains suitable as a long-term organisational structure.
This is not a geographical or recruitment question! It is far more a question of trying to predict the future of the office as we know it and how further changes are going to affect the world of office workers. Many of you will be surprised to know that the first idea of remote working was launched in the 1970’s by NASA engineers as a means of combatting the oil crisis, so what has happened since? To gain an understanding of this you need to assess a vast range of criteria ranging from the history of technical progress to the influence of social criteria such as prestige and office politics, the complexity of which means that it is difficult to ascertain where the future lies.

Digital transformation of the economy and the workplace is not a new phenomenon. It was already making rapid inroads thanks to digitalisation based on AI, big data and robotization, however the current Covid-19 confinement has provoked a huge step forward with almost everyone working from home, we have reached a new tipping point.
While digital transformation might have sounded far reached to some just a few months ago, today it has become clear that our ways of working will never return to the way things were and we all have to adapt to the “new normal”. The current situation has precipitated fundamental changes in our working practices; we have had to respond with agile thinking to transform our business routines digitally from one day to the next.
So how is a proper digital transformation set up for success?
When can we proudly conclude that we have transformed our business digitally and are up to speed? How do we know?
your capacity to achieve.
