The rules that have governed how companies operate for the past 150 years are changing and no one is really certain of what comes next. Companies need to have leaders and organizations who are comfortable operating with uncertainty and can rapidly evolve to adapt to changing markets and directions. Snapshot Research provides innovative analysis capturing the current state of mind of digital professionals.
Each month we will conduct research into a different timely topic. A list of all previous research topics and their findings can be found here.
The Pandemic and the Next Normal
The COVID-19 virus and the worldwide pandemic it has caused is the kind of disruption Digital Enterprises may be able to adapt to. But can they? Can you? This month's Snapshot Research focuses on what you think the post-pandemic workplace will look like. What will work look like in the “next normal?”
How will your organization adapt and how do you feel about that? Let us know what you think.
Results: Effects of the Pandemic on the Future of Work
Our last Snapshot Research focused on Effects of the Pandemic on the Future of Work.
The COVID-19 virus and the worldwide pandemic it has caused is the kind of disruption Digital Enterprises may be able to adapt to. But can they? Can you? This month's Snapshot Research focuses on how the world-wide Pandemic has affected you and the future of work. When applicable, can we transition to a more remote workforce and how does that affect us today and in the future? What will work look like in the “new normal.”
You have let us know.
Let’s look at the data and review the three “brutal facts” we learned:
- Most companies and organizations (90%) have been forced to accept remote work (from home) because of the Convid-19 lock-down
- A majority of employees (65%) will work remotely more than before the Convid-19 lock-down
- 80% of the employees say that the organization is as effective working remotely as before the lock-down.
Finally, the data shows although 56% of respondents agree or strongly agree that they miss their co-workers. An alarming 44% are neutral, disagree or strongly disagree. Specifically, 3% of respondents appear to NOT miss their co-workers. In these instances, there may be evidence of a toxic work environment – which could be another Snapshot research.
