During the “hard” lockdown, remote work emerged as the “new way” of working. The solutions adopted, abruptly and often without adequate preparation, represent a precious opportunity for organizational scholars to explore very relevant issues. In this paper, the themes of inclusion and isolation are addressed. We integrate frameworks focused exclusively on remote work outcomes with those focused on managerial practices resulting from its adoption. The focus is on the relationships between some of the dimensions relating to implementation – coordination and control tools and social support processes – and the employees’ perceptions of isolation and/or inclusion. Data collected through a quantitative survey, carried out immediately after the end of the first lockdown (March-May 2020) on a sample of 254 remote workers inserted in hierarchically structured contexts, are analyzed. The results of the analysis show that both output control and coordination tools, as well as organizational and co-workers’ support, reinforce the sense of belonging, thus positively orienting the relationship between remote work experience and the perception of inclusion. The research reaffirms the criticality of the design choices of the coordination and control systems in favoring high levels of inclusion, but at the same time highlights the limits of the design action, which needs to be integrated by an effort aimed at promoting social support at work.
