Remote work is here to stay, according to Introhive
Current remote work statistics tell us that 18% of executives work remotely more often than on-site, and another 18% work remotely one to three times per week.
In the United States alone, 4.7 million people (which equates to 3.4% of the workforce) work remotely at least half the week and, if they could, 99% of people would choose to work remotely at least part-time. Perhaps most impressive? The number of people who work remotely at least once per week has grown by 400% since 2010. Only time will tell the overall impact to work from home culture in the years following the rebound from 2020’s COVID-19 pandemic. However, thanks to advances in technology and a rapid shift towards digital transformation, more and more organizations are able to successfully deploy part- or full-time remote workers. While it’s understandable that employees are keen to work remotely, it’s equally understandable that managers have reservations.
Remote workforces come with a unique set of challenges:
- Lack of visibility into teams’ activities, time management and coaching opportunities
- Communication breakdowns due to lack of interpersonal interaction
- No way to measure customer interactions, satisfaction or sentiment
- Administrative, security and IT infrastructure burdens As remote work becomes more commonplace, the use of technologies and need to find innovative solutions grows, too.
