With new ways of working come new challenges, particularly for those managing a remote workforce. A new survey from global workspace provider Regus has identified the expectations of today’s workforce relating to flexible working and performance.
Regus surveyed over 1500 professionals across the UK to understand attitudes towards remote working reporting and management.
Results show that regular contact is key, and the immediacy of instant messaging is a crucial tool in today’s business environment. 74% of respondents agreed that remote workers and managers should remain connected via instant messaging apps as well as telephone.
