Robert Cruz, of Investment News, has made available for download his article “New ways to communicate are complicating compliance”, published on Investment News. The abstract is as follows:
When the pandemic shuttered offices around the world, forcing everyone to work from home, some organizations transitioned with few problems. And while others adjusted more slowly, most have come to enjoy the flexibility of remote work and remain productive as ever, if not more so.
Support for this argument comes from a recent poll, which found that only about 3% of white-collar professionals worldwide want to return to the office full time. No doubt in an effort to attract and retain top talent, companies have taken note. For instance, Microsoft’s newly announced office reopening plan “embraces schedule flexibility.”
Financial services is different from other industries, tending to lean more heavily on face-to-face meetings. Yet more executives are beginning to accept that staff will, at least for the time being, continue to work from home (or elsewhere), even as today’s tech-driven workplace has created headaches for internal compliance, regulatory and legal professionals.
