The Future of Working From Home
Future of Working From Home: What Are The Biggest Companies Doing?

Google believes they will need more space to accommodate social distancing. Salesforce says it will come down to programming teams and using the space creatively. WeWork sees a bright future with flexibility as the highest priority. And small and midsize companies are rethinking their need for office space altogether.

Then there is the discussion about social capital and proximity to power. These experts say we have a human need for social connection that will win out over this current situation. But in the meantime, there will be a delicate balance between those who benefit from being in the office and those who enjoy working from home. Maybe.

The facts about the new way of working.

What we know is that a lot of people don’t want to go back to the rat race that previously ruled their lives. They’ve been thinking about their lives, their futures, and the world they want to live in. They like getting things done at home. Being available to their family. Many are seeing their better selves. Isolation aside. And companies are seeing a serious increase in productivity. As the head of corporate space for Salesforce recently said on NPR, a light switch has been turned on.

Here’s what we know at SNP. This is a moment for great leaders and managers. Clarity of goals and objectives, expectations, outcomes, and active engagement are now more essential than ever. Communication is the skill they must master to win at this moment. As we say at SNP, we’re all broadcasters now. The great ones get it.

So what will the future of working from home be like?

We believe the answer lies with you. Do you want to go back to a home away from home? The commute? Dictated place and time requirements? Or do you want the flexibility of working where you are most productive? Your companies are listening right now. Tell them.

We see a world with redesigned offices built for meetings and social spaces instead of rooms of desks. Neighborhood-based shared hubs. And meeting spaces to accommodate the increased demand for team offsites and large venues for company-wide meetings.

You are the future.

We will always need the social connection, the collaboration, and yes, the forums for power and ambition. But your company is doing the math. And like what they’re seeing. So it’s time to ask for what you want. You are the future of work.

GMU Live

Hyatt tapped SNP to create a video promoting GMU Live — the onsite portion of General Manager University onboarding program. SNP traveled to Chicago for the shoot to coach the speakers on camera and capture compelling b-roll that highlighted the new general managers’ emotional, and educational journey into Hyatt.

Hyatt Glasswing Overview

SNP produced an internal marketing video to help raise awareness and adoption of Hyatt’s new Glasswing application, which tracks real-time financial data, KPIs, and other core metrics for owners and operators. From conducting the interviews, to coaching the speakers on camera and editing the video, SNP owned the content creation at each step of production.

Back in 2013, Asana was still a young company and some of their managers were experiencing leadership roles for the first time. So they needed to learn how to be, well, leaders. Like how to be more influential, directive, confident, and how to deal with conflict. Because if they could flourish then Asana could start to scale even faster (and without so many growing pains).

Enter SNP.

We started with just one 1:1 coaching relationship. But the good word spread fast. Soon enough more people from Asana’s management team were seeking our unique third party perspective, skill-based approach, and communications expertise to build their personal brand, strengthen their careers, and achieve more. (And did we mention the coaching program was a perk that attracted new talent? We didn’t? Well…) Eight years later and Asana is still scaling. And we’re still by their side helping them do it.
