In today’s virtual work environment, we’ve learned
a few things.
Productivity isn’t necessarily hurt — and may be improved — in remote environments. A PwC survey found a 47 percent productivity increase in 2020, despite the large rise in working from home. And 94 percent of employers surveyed by Mercer reported productivity was unaffected or improved during the pandemic.
So while working from home presents some challenges, remote workers have proven they can engage at high levels. In remote and hybrid environments, leaders need to be even more intentional about creating the right conditions for high engagement.
