Data analytics and the remote workforce
Before Covid struck, CEOs had idealized visions of what the future of work should look like for their businesses.
Forward-thinking companies were hopeful that attitudes would move with the times. Priorities differed amongst businesses and their leaders, but one consensus was that they would be implemented primarily in the same office environment.
However, times have changed quicker than we could have ever imagined, and, as a result, this forced businesses to change with them.
For many decades, this was the focal point of any organization, but Covid-19 has meant that the office is no longer the principal place where work gets done for many businesses.
Over the last 18 months, many business leaders have seen the benefits that remote working brings and how it can complement the traditional office-based environment. These benefits have led to the development of a new concept known as hybrid working.
Due to its success, businesses in the banking sector have approached the 'hybrid-first' theme and reflected it in how they think about productivity, employee engagement, and organizational agility.
