  • The evolution of workplace flexibility

  • What employees really want and how to best support their needs
  • How intranets are turning the tables and influencing employee retention and satisfaction

As technology continues to improve and employee wants and needs continue to change, companies must evolve with the times.  Tune in to hear real-world answers from your peers.

How did we get here?

The Akumina team conducted the second annual survey in search of the latest digital workplace trends.  After finding some gaps in current research, we strategically asked questions that would close some of those holes.

Amongst these questions were

  • Do you work fully in-person, fully remotely, or in a hybrid environment?
  • Are you currently, or have you ever considered leaving your job for a company that better supports your physical and/or mental wellbeing?
  • We often see companies using tools/applications to help with customer experience but do not reciprocate the processes to internal workers.  What tools/applications is your company utilizing for both customer satisfaction and employee experience?

What has changed in the past 12 months?

It seems like more and more people are headed back to the office; well that's what we thought anyway.  It turns out more employees are working remotely, or at least in a hybrid environment, than this time last year.  With policies and restrictions taking a turn since the pandemic, more organizations are actually empowering their teams to make their own decisions on when and where they work. 


Curious about what else has canged?  Take a look at the 2022 State of the Digital Workplace and Modern Intranet report to compare with this year's results. 


The decision to work in-person or remotely is left up to the individual employee and their manager
