The Distributed Work Dilemma: When Innovation and Job Satisfaction Compete is a global report analyzing trends in the distributed workforce. The survey — conducted by Vanson Bourne and commissioned by VMware — collected global data from 5,300 HR, IT, and business decision makers, and employee-level respondents, from July to August of 2022. Insights from the survey reveal how the world of work was never an easy place to navigate. New technologies, corporate politics, and threats from competition have long presented challenges to even the highest functioning organizations. But the current environment — with its hybrid- and anywhere work models — have turned this already complicated landscape into a minefield, creating new and competing priorities. Organizations that cling to absolutes will find themselves falling behind in this climate. In this report, learn how organizations can adopt new systems and mindsets that allow them to embrace flexibility in all its forms.
