The Brisbane FEM chapter confirmed that remote working is here to stay!  

Not only did we review Deloitte’s global survey regarding remote working and analysed the different stages most MNCs are at but we also received many examples from the room from people working remotely either under an Australian entity or a GEC. 

5 key trends emerged from the survey results across all demographics of respondents (820+ survey recipients):

  • Majority of organizations are enabling remote work.
  • Remote work is predominately driven by talent pressures.
  • Many organizations are experiencing tension when designing a policy due to competing priorities between talent demands and risk mitigation.
  • Many organizations are implementing a combination of guardrails to address legal and compliance risks.
  • There's a gap between policy inception and roll out and the ability to operationalize and enforce remote work processes.

Remote working flexibility has become an Talent Retention strategy. Employee expectations around where they work are shifting and employers must adapt to attract, recruit and retain talent.  Having said this, 69% of organisations surveyed do not currently permit long-term international remote working. Also  45% of organisations limit the amount of time employees can work outside of their home state…

Our wonderful panel gave many examples of policy development, risks and compliance issues.  The session was informative and enjoyable. Great community discussion.
