Loss of company culture: One of the top barriers to remote work according to business leaders. They wondered how their employees would stay engaged with their work and with each other if they were separated.
Enter 2020, where nearly everyone had to stop working or work remotely due to the global pandemic.
According to a recent Gartner survey1, 74 percent of business leaders believe that at least some of their newly remote employees will not need to return to the office once the current crisis has passed.
Remote working has gone from a nice-to-have perk to a way of life for a considerable number of employees around the world. Taking what they learn from the crisis and applying it moving forward will be a road to success for many companies.
And for many executives, those lessons have included new ways to engage their workers.
