More than two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, many employees continue to feel the pressure working from home. While remote work provided new flexibility and opportunity, it was also a recipe for burnout. 

The average staffer sends 42% more chats afterhours than they used to, and slightly more than one-half (54%) say they’re overworked, according to the Microsoft 2021 Work Trend Index 

Hybrid work arrangements have been a welcome development for many. Many see value in face-to-face interactions with managers and coworkers, with 67% of those surveyed in the Work Trend Index wanting more in-person work or collaboration post-pandemic.  

Still, a divide remains: only one-third of business and HR leaders strongly believe their organization is building high levels of trust between workers and their direct supervisors in today’s work model.
