Working from home was an emerging trend even before COVID-19, but as we know so well, the pandemic threw out many of the old rules, creating incredible cultural shifts almost overnight. Nowhere have these changes been more prevalent than in the workplace. That’s why we wanted to introduce you to Accenture’s important and compelling recent research findings, which they also presented at their Poppulo Bootcamp Presentation.
The research started before the pandemic, identifying the pre-existing trends that COVID-19 put into overdrive. Consisting of a global workforce program of over 5,400 workers and 1,000 C-suite perspectives, Dr. Kelly Monahan and Dr. Tchicaya Ellis Robertson gathered insights on the dramatic changes in workplace habits over the past few years, and what those changes may mean for the future. They identify six key areas for improvement, with demonstrable effects on how employees can respond to the rapid changes in work habits.
