As a consequence, one of the most trending topics for employers across the Latin America region, and certainly across the globe, has been Workforce Redesign.
There is no doubt that the pandemic has impacted the workplace landscape. Before this new reality hit, remote work was mainly used as an exception and many times frowned upon by many employers across different industries, for the lack of direct control and supervision over their employees. To the surprise of many, this new modality was not only successful, but in certain cases created a huge positive impact in productivity. As a consequence, not only has there been many changes in the employment legal landscape across Latin America, but this also has been one of the most attractive scenarios when acquiring or retaining talent in many companies.
Organizations and employees alike are eager to capitalize on the opportunities offered by technological advancements and shifts in working culture. We are witnessing a significant evolution in the types of work people do, where and how work gets done, as work moves beyond traditional paradigms.
