A summary of findings in "Transformation of the Global Workforce: Remote Work" by Worldwide ERC in January 2021:
- 80.9% of large organizations (10,000 + employees) anticipate 50% or more of their workforce working remotely on a permanent basis.
- 76.3% of smaller organizations (1,001 to 10,000 employees) anticipate 50% or less of their workforce being remote on a permanent basis.
The findings clearly show that the shift is massive and very consequential. People are making new choices about where they want to live and creating new expectations about flexibility, working conditions and life balance that can't be undone.
In the near future, some organizations will adopt a hybrid-work model, with certain days in the office and others remote, and might align employees' in-office and remote schedules to create equity.
Businesses that do it well will drive engagement, achieve organizational agility, maintain alignment and empower teamwork across all disciplines and locations. They will have a competitive advantage in this new era of work.
In this webinar, find out best practice towards business agility, resurgence, and recovery while continuously adapting to working from home.
