SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, USA, June 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Reworked, a leading native digital publication by Simpler Media Group (SMG) that covers the r/evoution of work, announced today the release of its latest report, The 2022 State of the Digital Workplace, which provides an authoritative portrait of a collective digital workplace journey.
This is the seventh annual report of its kind and the findings reflect the survey results from more than 1,200 enterprise-level digital workplace executives and practitioners who submitted their responses between early February and mid-March 2022. The report highlights the current state of the digital workplace – the challenges and opportunities – and offers insight into what’s next and how companies are navigating the hybrid age.
Key takeaways from the report include:
– The number of fully remote workplaces has doubled. Organizations committing to a fully remote future have doubled from 5% to 10%. While time will tell if this trend continues, it could be a tipping point as more hybrid workplaces go fully digital.
– Perceptions of the digital workplace’s importance may have peaked but remain high. In fact, 72% of organizations say the digital workplace is extremely or very important, but it’s the first time this measure declined in the past few years. This is likely a slight pullback as a result of two years of increased investments in the digital workplace.
– The digital workplace “to-do” list looks long. The results show that 26% of organizations regard their digital workplace as fully mature, meaning 74% believe there is still room to grow; teams still have a lot of work to do.
– Digital workplace teams are actively planning to invest. Over half (52%) of organizations are actively planning digital workplace projects, from making the business case to gathering requirements, a figure that has doubled over the past year.
– Digital workplace tools and technologies just got better…again. The report shows that 80% of organizations say their ecosystem of digital workplace tools is working well or is satisfactory, rising each year since 2019, when the comparative figure was only 50%.
In the introduction to the report, SMG’s CEO Brice Dunwoodie wrote, “The pandemic has undoubtedly proved to be a catalyst, but many of the trends we see were already in flight.” He went on to explain, “Adoption has scaled, tools have improved, and digital workplace teams have advanced. And perceptions have changed — the digital workplace is a priority area.”
In addition, SMG’s VP of Research, Sarah Kimmell, commented, “The workplace is changing. But where we were even just a year ago is not where we are today – or even where we hoped we might be at this point. The nuances of the digital workplace and identifying ownership of the initiatives make it a challenge.” She continued, “But it’s essential to understand that the digital workplace encompasses all digital touchpoints and enables hybrid remote work arrangements.”
