The shift to remote work came abruptly, and many organizations turned to Microsoft’s suite of productivity tools to help them with their companies’ objectives. While the tools to get the work done and collaborate have been a game changer, the results have led to some unintended consequences. According to a recent Work Trend Index Study conducted by Microsoft:
- 73% of these new remote workers have stated that they want these flexible work options to remain in place.
- 80% of leaders plan to make major changes to their flexible work policies.
- 67% of employees want more in-person work or collaboration.
For employers dealing with a remote workforce, ensuring cohesion within the company has become an increasingly important initiative. Viva will help your organization:
- Prevent Burnout
