Two years ago, hybrid work was widely uncommon, a sparce benefit. Now, in many industries, it’s the predominant way of working. Two years ago, stress and burnout were well-kept secrets within office walls. Now, reducing that stress is (or at least should be) a primary objective for just about every HR team out there.
The workplace is almost unrecognizable compared to early 2020. But two years into COVID, trends and challenges are crystallizing to present a clear picture of the state of the workplace now and where it is headed. It is a workplace with one foot in the future of work and the other held in place by the complexities of the Great Resignation and the continued need to reduce stress and increase equity in the workplace.
On this episode of How We Work, Dr. Meisha-ann Martin, senior director of people analytics and research at Workhuman®, and Dr. Isha Vicaria, a social psychologist and researcher on the Workhuman® iQ team, break down our most recent survey report Two Years into COVID: The State of the Human Workplace.
