Accenture’s ‘The Future of Work be Productive Anywhere’ report, which surveyed nearly 10,000 workers across 11 countries, revealed that 40% of individuals feel they can be more productive and healthier — by either working fully or partially remotely.
In the ‘new normal’ of the post-Covid-19 environment, individuals desire the ability to work remotely between 25% and 75% of the time, according to the report.
Hence the hybrid workplace is emerging.
In a major plus for employers, 85% of the people who say they can be productive and healthier anywhere also say they plan to stay with their company for a longer time.
“There’s a pattern emerging in the post-pandemic workforce — the ‘productive, anywhere’ worker,” said Christie Smith, senior managing director and global lead of Talent & Organization / Human Potential at Accenture. “This new workforce segment consists of individuals who remain productive — whether on-site or remote — and who have the strongest personal and organisational resources.”
What separates those workers who are productive anywhere (40%) from those who are disconnected and frustrated (8%), is not stress, but whether they have the right resources to help them be productive anywhere.
These resources include having job autonomy, a positive environment, supportive leadership and a digitally mature organisation.
Organisations that enable their workforces to be more productive and healthier anywhere are also reaping financial benefits. The report found that 63% of high revenue growth companies have already enabled productivity anywhere workforce models in which employees have the option of working remotely or on-site.
Meanwhile, the majority (69%) of negative or no-growth companies are still focused on people going to a physical workplace, favouring all on-site rather than empowering their workers with digital technology.
