In my Master’s thesis I studied how remote working (due to the Covid-19 pandemic) affected Office Workers and their Organizational Culture in companies and within organizations (when only communicating through digital means). The data, collected through (11) semi-structured interviews, was coded and thematized.
In the results, I present analysis of the assessments that need to be implemented to handle such unforeseen situations, and at the same time remotely lead the office workers.
The study can increase the microsociological knowledge of organizational structures and employee voice & empowerment in office workers. To retain the company culture with co-workers, the weight of face-to-face interactions does matter.
