In these unprecedented times when the entire country has gone into a state of lockdown, a large number of companies have had to shift their mode of operation to a work-from-home model. This has resulted in remote teams monitoring projects over electronic media. Though this method of operation comes with its own set of advantages such as being able to work on tasks at our comfortable pace and time, it brings along a lot of demerits with it as well. The freedom that work-from-home provides masks a lot of disadvantages too.
Remote teams are unable to share the bond that is possible when face-to-face interaction happens regularly. Human interaction is extremely necessary to form and strengthen bonds between individuals. When we talk to a person daily, we get to know about their traits, their likes and dislikes, their interests and so on. Getting to know people on a personal level makes us feel connected to them, which leads to better coordination in tasks that are to be performed in unison.
