Organizational politics can take many forms – it can be at the functional level, structural level, interactive and networking level. It can be legitimate – where enforcing it is necessary as well as illegitimate which violates the rights of others.
Organizational politics is detrimental to the overall culture of the organization. It affects employee retention, as employees who have been subjected to the negative effects of politics end up leaving the organization and looking for other jobs. Most employees do not want to get involved in politics. It is extremely stressful for such individuals to continue working in the organization as they are worried about their future there (Kaya et al., 2016).
However, like every good thing has a flip side, so does technology. It is ironic how communication is supposed to be made hassle-free due to the use of technology but there are barriers to communication while working remotely, which would have not occurred in a traditional work setting. Lack of accountability and poor retention of employees are other barriers to remote working. Since it is not possible to physically monitor employees who are remotely located, it becomes challenging to track their productivity as well as keep up their morale. Apart from limited access, there also exist issues regarding cultural barriers where workers fear penalties on failing to meet deadlines (since expectations are high) and there exist insecurities regarding their managers preferring physical presence to remote, thereby adding to their disadvantage (Lott & Abendroth, 2019).
