Overcome the Challenges of Hybrid/Remote Work
How is your organization dealing with the ever-present challenges of shifting to hybrid/remote work?
Recent findings show that many organizations continue to struggle with the shift across all fronts – technology, operations, and the workforce.
- People feel disconnected. 43% of leaders say relationship-building is the greatest challenge in remote and hybrid work. (Microsoft Work Trend Index 2022, “Great Expectations: Making Hybrid Work Work)
- Burnout is a global problem. About 85% say well-being has declined, and 56% say job demands have increased. (Jennifer Moss, “Beyond Burned Out”, Harvard Business Review February 10, 2021).
- Wasted time spent hunting for information. People spend about an hour per day searching for or re-creating information. Using multiple tools drives context switching, drains productivity, and creates frustration. (Spiceworks/Ziff Davis survey commissioned by Microsoft, 2021.)
- Leaders are concerned about talent and skills. About 79% of CEOs worldwide are concerned that a lack of essential skills in their workforce is a barrier to future growth. (PwC CEO Survey, 2019.)
