NEW RESEARCH SHOWS WORK FROM HOME NEGATIVELY AFFECTS CAREER DEVELOPMENT FOR YOUNG PROFESSIONALS

After more than a year of working from home, many employees are looking forward to when they can return to the office. More importantly, though, heading back to a shared space may prove beneficial in more ways than one, specifically for younger people who are entering the workforce for the first time. 

According to a recent Ipsos survey, younger workers, aged 18 to 28, are more adversely affected by remote work. Respondents to the survey noted that an absence of on-the-job training, isolation and a loss of trust were some of the most common challenges they faced daily. Additionally, young people are losing out on the experience, skills and knowledge transfer from more senior colleagues, which could lead to a lack of productivity, a sense of team cohesion and organisational culture, and potentially stunted career growth.

Stella Fleetwood, Service Line Lead at Ipsos, shares more results from the survey in this interview.
