If you laugh at the idea of quality time with your colleagues and employees, it might be an indication that your office is suffering from a certain level of fatigue with one another. Even the most collegial offices can grow tired of one another and the endless discussions and meetings that often seem to go over an hour past the intended time with half the action items achieved. When you have employees working remotely, everyone knows that their time in the office is precious and will be ready to bring their personal bests to both formal and informal engagements with their colleagues. No more mind-numbing presentations or hollow small-talk at the water cooler. Employees that see one another less frequently will be more excited to catch up in person and will be more able to appreciate the value that their colleagues are adding when they do engage in person.
