THE COVID CRISIS AND CONFINEMENT
We are the March 16, 2020 . It’s 8 p.m. The tone is serious.
Faced with the growing threat of contamination massive to the Covid19 virus, the saturation of our health system, Emmanuel Macron takes the floor to announce that France is implementing total confinement .
Apart from professions covering basic needs, the French are therefore massively called upon to remain locked up at home and to work from home .
And this until further notice!
We all still remember it like it was yesterday, don't we?
THE DISCOVERY OF TELEWORKING: FLEXIBILITY, FREEDOM, AND FAMILY LIFE
For many employees, teleworking is something really very new , which until now was reserved for a certain category of professions or levels of diplomas.
Work yes of course, but from home, independently the most total.
It’s up to everyone to compose their day as he wishes , on the sole condition that the work is done.
No more driving for miles in traffic jams or navigating crowded subway corridors.
There freedom to organize one's schedule as one sees fit is invited at this moment in every home in France.
There flexibility to be able to juggle meetings and the children's homework as well.
A long-sought balance that has never been found until now is then put in place.
All at once, almost like magic.
COMPANIES ALSO FIND THEIR ACCOUNT
On the business side, we also discover that activities and business can continue even when employees are not. not physically present in the places.
Which is already a small revolution in itself.
And we're already starting to think about what's next .
Why persist in renting square meters of office space in the heart of Paris (or elsewhere) when employees can also be effective working from home (while paying for their heating and electricity)?...
THE ADVENTURE OF TELEWORKING
Based on these various observations, and after several successive confinements, teleworking has gradually become a real way of working as such, and is no longer just a simple response to crisis management.
So much so that today, companies that do not offer a teleworking system are shunned by employees, or even left.
We are even starting to talk about Great Resignation . This shows how the tide really seems to have turned...
However, can we affirm that power has finally returned to the side of the freedom and some quality of life employees?
Nothing is less sure...
TELEWORKING: LACK OF MANAGER CONFIDENCE, FLICKING AND MONITORING OF TELEWORKERS
THE bad habits are gradually regaining the upper hand.
It is a fact. This is probably not a generality, but some companies monitor their employees.
Either directly by checking their duration of connection , their browsing history, or even the number of clicks carried out during the day.
Either indirectly, by making a seemingly insignificant phone call at a random time of the day, to ensure availability of their workforce.
SCREEN STANDBY = INACTIVE / AWAY / OFF CONNECTION STATUS = PROBLEM / ALERT / ALERT
Sometimes still, a simple glance from the manager at the skype or teams status of the employee is enough to draw up a quick and discreet little inventory:
- seeing Green = no problem: active employee therefore “available”
- seeing red = no problem: employee “in a meeting” or “in communication”
- seeing orange = attention, vigilance: employee “absent from the office”
- gray light = maximum alert: employee “offline”
And there is no need for employees to play truant to quickly appear suspicious...
In reality, it is enough to be absent only a few minutes from his computer to be in the crosshairs of his company:
- cigarette break: “ away from the office ”
- coffee break followed by bathroom break: “ away from the office ”
- dishwasher storage: “ away from the office ”
- jogging or light housekeeping: “ away from the office ”
- receipt of a package: “ out of office ”
...or even worse if the screen were to go to sleep (generally 20 to 30 minutes of inactivity are enough): " OFF CONNECTION "...
...Who seen from the side of his manager simply means: "my employee has decided not to turn on his computer today, and is therefore clearly making fun of me"...
TELEWORK: THE EMPLOYEE GUILT SYNDROME
From the employee's point of view, the situation is not the most comfortable .
He knows how lucky he is to now be able to work from home.
To pick up your children from school, to be able to empty your dishwasher between noon and two, to be installed in the comfort and soft cocoon of your home.
And in this he feels indebted of his business.
Indebted for giving him the chance to finally be able to balance your life professional and personal life.
To be able to taste this marvelous feeling of freedom .
He will therefore do everything to show his employer that he is just as efficient , that he can count on him even when teleworking, and that he is always in front of his computer when necessary.
Even if it means doing it a little too much sometimes...
According to a recent study, employees would spend an hour a day doing nothing in front of their computer , simply to show their company that they are teleworking.
That’s crazy, isn’t it? And even a little sad...
According to another study, an employee is 22% more effective remotely than in person.
From the employee's point of view, what's the point of spending the time saved pretending to work?
Why not take advantage of this to do something else important to him.
Play sports, take care of your children, get some fresh air, develop projects, do housework...travel!
So how can you ensure that you take a well-deserved break , without the manager thinking that his or her colleague is taking advantage and abusing the situation.
Well, employees have finally found a solution .
JUST MOVE YOUR MOUSE!
But yes of course why hadn't we thought of it before...
To prevent the screen from going to sleep or indicating the inactivity of the teleworker, simply make the mouse move so that the computer thinks that the employee is still there.
Easier said than done at the same time...
Many DIY projects and tests of all kinds have emerged during Covid, including some examples below, some of them quite funny:
- install software on the computer
- put the mouse in a glass (to trick the optics)
- put the mouse on your smartphone after launching a very specific video (well yeah but how do you make a phone call afterward)
- attach the mouse to a running fan (we love this one for its inventiveness)
- ...and we're moving on because the list is really very long
No solution is truly miraculous or very simple to implement.
If we take the example of software, their installation often proves impossible on computers loaned by companies (computer security requirements, etc.).
A tool was therefore created: the mouse mover (or mouse jiggler by its nickname across the Atlantic).
The result ?
Skype, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, with the reassuring little green “available” light .
The mouse cursor movement simulator is a great tool for balancing work and play , without having to worry about your manager's perceived "idle" or "out of office" status on the other side of the phone. 'screen.
The mouse mover requires no software to install, and it is undetectable by hardware scans and companies' IT.
Just plug it in like a regular mouse, press the button, and you're done.
The device can simulate a mouse movement or regularly repeated clicks.
