HR Tech Outlook | Friday, November 20, 2020

There is no doubt that COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of the hybrid workforce. While roughly 40 percent of people already worked remotely full-time and also will continue to do so, 35 percent plan to work from home two days a week once COVID-19 is over.

FREMONT, CA: Ten Spot, the workforce engagement platform that keeps employees connected, has revealed the results of its national employee survey, Employee Productivity & Engagement During Covid-19. The findings offer insight into the productivity as well as engagement levels of those who have been working from home since the pandemic started and the challenges they have faced. In addition, the results show insights into how connected workers feel to their colleagues while working remotely, what they require in order to be more successful in working from home, and how working from home has positively influenced their lives. Some key highlights are:

- 80 percent say Zoom fatigue is not hindering their productivity

- 61 percent of those who say they are not at all engaged and productive are looking for news jobs, vs. 33 percent of those who say they are very productive and engaged

- The online social activities that employees are quite interested in being provided with include something associated with mental well being (meditation, stress management, etc.), fun experiences (virtual happy hours, trivia challenges, etc.), and learning new skills to use at home (cooking, crafts, etc.)

There is no doubt that COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of the hybrid workforce. While roughly 40 percent of people already worked remotely full-time and also will continue to do so, 35 percent plan to work from home two days a week once COVID-19 is over.

"The insights from the survey data not only validate the value of non-work moments and interactions with colleagues but magnify the incredible shift workers have had to make in the last eight months in trying to stay connected to their co-workers. Employees not only want to be seen and heard by their team members more than ever before, but they want to feel connected to them as well," says Sammy Courtright, co-founder and chief brand officer, Ten Spot. "What makes Ten Spot different is it helps companies provide their employees with fun and engaging virtual events so they can disconnect from work and reconnect with each other, something that is so important right now."
