Any company that wants to lean into a successful R/Marrangement is going to have to build it intothe company structure not dangle it like a prize, endure, or be shamed into a relationship thatisnot right for their company. Employees who work better at home shouldnot have to worry thatworkingat home;while right for them may diminish,their chances within the company from their lack of face time or suffer the wrath of those left behind at the office. Nor should they have to worry that their arrangement will suddenly be snatched away one day.
Every workplace has a culture. The challenge is if a company wants to have an R/M workforce, even if just a small part of its workforce, then to embrace that and build that mindset into the workplace culture through every piece and part of its ranks. The idea that R/M relationships enhance not just the employee’s life but the company’s mission as well. When that is in place, everyone is encouraged by an R/M plan rather than discouraged, even those who do work in the office.After all working R/M is just a different way/place to work – not different work. If the company management doesn’t consider R/M workforces as an “an alternative arrangement/schedule” then no one else will. Unsuccessful R/M plans commonly start small and then take on a life of their own, growing and rambling into a sudden hodgepodge of weedy work arrangements. If you do not “grow” a disaster of an R/M plan, you will not have one to dismantle.

- Unleashing the ambitions that are alive in everyone and keeping their goals aligned with your company even if those people are not physically on site.
- Negative Disrupting Dysfunctional Managers – usually hiding in plain sight; what to do about them and with them. Because they will ruin (or try to ruin) all your R/M plans and their R/M employees arrangements, if not their careers.
- What to do with employees at the office who are losing productivity worrying about what others are doing at home ore elsewhere.
- Creating a workplace with a cohesive culture – without creating a stereotype of what manifests “success”, or on whom success is modeled and that success is not dependent on where someone’s physical worksite is located.
