No, it’s not ready for public eyes yet. But we can share some quick highlights as a taste of the smorgasbord that’s yet to come, from a dataset based on more than 400 survey responses to a survey we conducted throughout July.
Here are three initial takeaways for you to snack on:
1. Candidates are playing their power cards
More than one in five respondents say candidate sourcing and attraction is a major challenge now, compared with one in 10 in 2020. And respondents are also saying compensation and benefits have become more important for candidates – while job security has become less important.
2. No more extremes: hybrid’s the middle ground
One in five respondents switched to a hybrid model after going remote as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. And respondents are 83% more likely now than in 2020 to have moved to partially remote operations.
3. Morale is still in major flux
Three out of five respondents say employee disengagement is a major challenge in moving to a new, post-COVID work world – higher than any other challenge. Plus, overall anxiety and uncertainty around business strategic planning, workplace safety, and job futures is a major challenge in this new world of work.
