How We Work: 14 Stats

5,454 views

Published on

For our annual State of Work Report — now in its fifth year — we surveyed more than 2,000 knowledge workers in the US and more than 2,000 workers in the UK to better understand current views on work.

We gathered hundreds of data points in the process and found a workforce that believes their work matters but is sometimes frustrated by the changes that come with the digital transformation.

Even though some of these stats showcase frustrations, there is hope that as we make efforts to streamline workflows, improve visibility, and use an operational system of record, the state of work will improve.
