Remote workers are getting the job done!
A recent survey by Quantum Workplace suggests that remote workers give themselves high marks for productivity.
The abrupt shift to working from home caught a lot of employers and employees off-guard, but after weeks of practice, employees now say they feel right at home in the home office. In its recent COVID-19 Pandemic Pulse Survey, Quantum Workplace asked more than 40,000 respondents how working from home was going.
Despite the fact that some 40% of respondents said they had never worked remotely, just 4% say the switch has had a major impact on their daily performance. Overall, they feel they’re more productive with 30% saying they’re accomplishing more in less time, and 23% willing to work longer hours to finish their work.
What’s responsible for the smooth transition among remote employees? Nine out of 10 say they “Feel well supported by my organization” and also that “communication from leaders keeps me informed.”
“The better managers become at listening, the more agile they will be in helping maintain corporate cultures, stabilizing businesses and ensuring teams return to a path for productivity and growth,” said Greg Harris, co-founder and chief executive officer at Quantum Workplace. “Our daily lives have changed dramatically in the past 60 days, and this has transitioned into our corporate cultures. Company strategies are being adjusted while talent management models continue to evolve again, too.
