“At Motus we have always prided ourselves on being forward-thinking, embracing change, and continually focusing on establishing our organization as a purpose and place that our team members want to be a part of and contribute to. We may be ahead of ourselves on this one, but we simply do not think that the notion of ‘going back to work’ is the appropriate response to what has been discovered and learned from this pandemic. We are instead focused on ‘working forward’ and imagining what the future of work and life could look like,” said Craig Powell, President and CEO of Motus. “I am certain that we haven’t yet nailed it with respect to the perfect formula for ‘working forward.’ But, what I do know is that I would rather invest the dollars we spend on real estate – which is vacant, inflexible, and will be limited for months to come – back into the personal lives of our team members and ensuring that they have the best work and life environment that they can. We’re focused on building the best culture we can for our people and ‘returning to work’ isn’t it, we want to work forward.”
Motus decided to make the shift to work from home permanently after conducting an expansive employee engagement study that included surveys, interviews and focus groups. Results showed a trend towards remote work prior to the enactment of COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, as less than half (47%) of Motus team members spent a majority of their time in the office before the implementation of isolation measures. Respondents cited the absence of a commute and additional time for personal pursuits as the top reasons for working from home. Additionally, 80% of Motus team members reported the current shift to full-time remote work has not caused a negative impact on their productivity.
