Microsoft examined how leaders are approaching the transition to hybrid work.

A survey of 31,102 full-time employees was conducted 30 countries around the globe from January 7, 2022 – February 16, 2022.

Key findings include:

  • 53% of employees were more likely to prioritize health and wellbeing over work than before the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Managers feel wedged between leadership and employee expectations.
    • 74% of managers said they don’t have the influence or resources to make change for employees.
    • 54% of managers said leadership is out of touch with employees.
  • 38% of hybrid employees said their biggest challenge is knowing when and why to come into the office.
    • 28% of leaders have created team agreements for hybrid work to define why and when to go to the office.
  • Meeting habits are changing – meetings now start later on Mondays and finish earlier on Fridays, and there are fewer meetings at lunch time.
    • 9-11 a.m. and 2-3 p.m. are the most popular meeting times.
