Rethinking Work As We Know It
Last week, we hosted organizational psychologist and New York Times bestselling author Adam Grant. He brought to light the many ways companies and professionals can rethink work in this hybrid work era. Today, we’re rethinking how work gets done when we’re collaborating remotely.
The infographic below explores the collaboration gap, a phenomenon in which leaders overestimate how much time their teams spend working individually in a typical week.
Our research revealed that knowledge workers spend about half their time working independently (51%) and half their time collaborating (49%). Business leaders assume otherwise, indicating they believe their teams spend 71% of their time working independently.
As you can see, business leaders assume their workers are overwhelmingly spending their time working alone. So over a 40-hour workweek, business leaders can underestimate how much collaboration occurs by over 8 hours. That’s a full work day! Download the full report for more insights.
