In 2022, 25 percent of respondents state that their biggest struggle when working remotely was not being able to unplug. As many people who work from home do not necessarily have a designated workspace, they experience a conflation between their living area and workplace. However, over one third of respondents answered that they experienced no struggles when working remotely.
As a result, remotely working employees emphasize the importance of finding strategies to balance their private lives with their professional routines. On the other hand, employees also state having less difficulties with collaboration and communication in 2021. This is likely due to the quick cultivation of skills during the 2020 pandemic that allow them to effectively communicate and collaborate with others when working from different locations.
Challenges inherent in new work set-ups
As employees work from different locations, companies are confronted with the urgency to ease some of the challenges inherent in novel hybrid work solutions. Strategies developed to support remote work include training for employees or expanding information technology infrastructure to ensure that employees can collaborate efficiently from different locations.
