[IN IT TOGETHER] Collaboration, connection challenging with hybrid workforce: Report
Hybrid work is here to stay and 2022 is about making it future-proof, according to customer relations management platform HubSpot. The company's “2022 Hybrid Work Report” is an analysis of feedback from a survey of over 4,000 full-time remote, in-office, and flex workers from companies in the US, UK, Ireland, Germany, Australia, France, Canada, and Japan. The analysis revealed findings around collaboration, culture, communication, mental health, and management in a hybrid world.
Key highlights include:
- 60% of parents and caregivers feel pressured to be "always on" during working hours, despite their current situation at home.
- 57% of respondents said they are to some degree likely to look for a new job in 2022 due to burnout.
- 49% of in-office workers found staying motivated and staying connected with their team to be the biggest challenges in the transition from remote to in-office work.
- 38% of flex workers see differences in the in-office and remote employee experience as an obstacle to success.
- 40% of remote workers miss spontaneous, in-person connections with their colleagues.
Katie Burke, HubSpot's Chief People Officer, commented, "One key learning over the past year is that caring and listening are table stakes. The companies who will be successful in 2022 and beyond will match that listening with action, setting bold strategies for the new future of work. For us at HubSpot, that's focusing on making sure our commitment to flexibility scales with our company in a way that is fair, inclusive, and friction-free, no matter where you choose to work from."
