It now means possible long term changes as well. Companies who did not previously allow tele-commuting must now embrace working from home as part of the a new business practises.

Is the ‘future office’ that you are working on now, used to be your little cozy corner called your reading area or a space on your dining table, when other than lunch-dinner hours, can be quickly turned into a workstation with laptop, notepad, additional screen and all? As an employer, how would you know if your team members are contributing without physical ‘line-of-sight’ or how do employees feel towards their own appraisals from their managers?

Ms Yao and team now help clients make this change with as little impact to their human resources and yet to still achieve corporate objectives, using technology and different successful approaches.
