Where did you work from today? What about yesterday? Last month? Like many employees in the U.S., your answer probably changes week to week.
The past two years of distributed work and accelerated digital transformation have changed work for the better. Namely, today’s knowledge workers benefit from unprecedented levels of autonomy and flexibility. But at the same time, workers who sit at a desk in a traditional office setting are increasingly rare and currently account for just 1 in every 5 employees around the world. The other 80% of the global workforce is deskless, traveling and operating in the field. Sound familiar?
This workplace evolution impacts all of us, but much of the discussion has been focused on desk-based knowledge workers. So, we wanted to know: Have deskless employees experienced the same gains as desk-based workers or are divisions growing? And what does this mean for employers?
