Businesses are failing to meet staff’s demands, with a fifth (20%) of human resources directors admitting they don’t know where to start in meeting their workforce’s flexibility needs.
This information was found in a new report from managed workplace services provider, Apogee Corporation. They surveyed over 200 HR directors and 200 employees across small and medium sized businesses and organisations in the public sector.
The report also found that 40% of employees are considering leaving their current job due to a lack of access to the right digital collaboration tools for flexible working.
The research shows there is a disconnect between HR and employees, with over a quarter of employees identifying insufficient tech as the biggest barrier to feeling more connected to their organisation.
Poor digital collaboration across hybrid work impacts staff: 29% feel frustrated, 28% isolated, and 28% feel an inability to do their job properly.
The research also reveals the lack of understanding around employees’ flexible working needs. 73% of employees disagree that their workplace needs are being met by their employer.
