Toll on Promotability and Skill Progression

  • More than one-third of respondents reported feeling isolated or undervalued at work due to their company’s approach to working from home.
  • This is coupled with the fact that 64% of respondents believe that a lack of ‘face time’ with their employer during this time has hindered their chance at a promotion.
  • In fact, 78% of respondents believed that working from home due to Covid-19 has had an impact on their personal development and progression in the workplace and 74% cited that company culture has suffered as a result.
