Work From Home Survey

Rhizome Learning delighted to present its survey report on Work From Home Survey, which has insights that might be counterintuitive to the emerging narrative. It is a collective reflection of 65 senior team leaders, mostly over 15 years in the industry. 

 

A couple of things stand out about this report. 

 

  • The top headline is that there is an overwhelming sense of helplessness in not being able to meet a larger crowd of the professional peer group -  juniors and seniors. Rhizome investigates a bit more into why this sense of longing.  

  • There is absolute distress at not being able to separate work from home chores and this is not helping anyone. Constant technology interruption is leading to immense fatigue. 

  • However, in spite of the fatigue with WFH, executives have welcomed the rest and flexibility gained in this period. It has helped them connect deeper within. 

  • From the learning stories, it is clear that team leaders have had their own journeys in creating trust and accountability in their teams. Therein lies the power of human resilience and intent, which is essential to coping with all situations. 

  • In the end, there is a bit of exploration from the Applied Neuroscience lens on how the future might look like, if this suppression of human interaction in real-time were to continue. 

We hope you will enjoy reading this report. We are grateful to our partners – ION Consulting, Momenta.biz and Uncover-y in helping to make this deep dive happen.
