"It makes sense for companies to want people back to their desks: productivity at home is lower"

“It makes sense for companies to want people back to their desks: productivity at home is lower”

De Koning explains that Young Capital employees log into the company’s system at home, so that phone traffic and emails can be monitored. It sounds like Big Brother, but De Koning makes it clear that people aren’t scrutinized individually: “We don’t check, we measure. You see the productivity numbers for what he achieved today,” he says. “Every trading company does this.”

De Kooning notes that productivity at home is lower. The company uses phone software to connect through your laptop, and it gets even worse at home: “If you work from home, you’ll see that the accessibility numbers are 40 percent worse than if you work in the office. At home you go for a cup of coffee much faster.” Have a coffee, the postman may come, and there is a lot of distraction.”

A little sense of independence

Organizational psychologist Oki Nauta responds: “How bad it is if you feel that everything you do can be constantly monitored.” “It gives little sense of independence. It doesn’t make people happy.” Companies advise talking to their employees: “As a business owner, you don’t have to impose anything, but together you should decide how best to get the work done.”
