The Great Reshuffle: Integrating our professional and personal lives

No longer a pipe-dream, or reality reserved only for those fortunate enough – hybrid work and the reality of being able to work from anywhere, at any time, continues to forge itself into existence.

For the past two years, initiated by the COVID-19 pandemic, employees across the globe have lived and breathed hybrid work. One thing is clear: We’re not the same people that went home to work in early 2020. There has been a fundamental shift in how we define the role of work in our lives – and for those who have experienced the upsides of flexible work, there’s no going back.

In the 2022 Microsoft Work Trend Index, data shows that the Great Reshuffle is far from over. Employees everywhere are rethinking their “worth it” equation and are voting with their feet. Leaders debate over how to make hybrid work work, and big questions remain unanswered. The challenges that lie ahead for every organisation will be to meet employee expectations while balancing business outcomes in an unpredictable economy.

Microsoft Next-Gen Endpoints Workshop

This report outlines findings from a study of 31,000 people across 31 countries, along with an analysis of trillions of productivity signals in Microsoft 365 and labour trends on LinkedIn. While we’re all learning as we go, the findings reveal an urgent opportunity—and responsibility—for leaders to approach the transition with intention and a growth mindset, or risk being left behind.

Five urgent trends business leaders need to know in 2022:

1. Employees have a new “worth it” equation.
2. Managers feel wedged between leadership and employee expectations.
3. Leaders need to make the office worth the commute.
4. Flexible work doesn’t have to mean “always on”.
5. Rebuilding social capital looks different in a hybrid world.
