Did any “problems” with virtual work also exist on-site? Technology is a convenient scapegoat for human shortcomings. If anything, the virtual environment tends to magnify issues with communication, team collaboration and/or management that were hiding in plain sight at the office. If managers vocalize difficulties gauging productivity of virtual workers, ask how they were measuring it in the office. If remote workers are having difficulty locating important files and information, odds are your company’s repository was disorganized to begin with. Whatever the case, take a moment to consider if communication, organization, and productivity were really better on-site before faulting remote work.
