According to a recent study by Mercer, 1 in 3 of organizations expect that 50% of their workforce will be remote as we exit the pandemic. This is a 10x increase since last year. In fact, you might be reading this right now from your home office (or the kitchen table, depending on your setup).
It’s my fourth week working at Oracle and it has been an interesting experience onboarding while working from home during a pandemic. I have been grateful for the technology and friendly teammates to make my experience as painless as possible in our new workplace environment.
One thing that I will be missing is attending Oracle OpenWorld in person this Fall. Don’t get me wrong, I am very much looking forward to attending Oracle Live virtually to absorb all the great content and engaging with other attendees. However, no matter how amazing the virtual experience is, I will miss the excitement of an in-person event, especially one as BIG as Oracle OpenWorld. I love any opportunity to meet customers in person, as well as other colleagues from around the world.
While I onboard at home, I am also missing meeting other employees in the office that might regularly work there or happen to be visiting for meetings. So, what am I doing instead to make those oh-so-important connections? Studying our org chart of course!
