  • How remote work is impacting productivity: Five trends for dispersed teams

July 2022

Did you know that when it comes to productivity, workers share more similarities than differences? A recent study conducted by Robert Half, which surveyed more than 500 professionals in Canada revealed five productivity trends that have taken shape since the shift to remote work. These are the findings:

  • Employees are most productive on Monday and Tuesday, whether at home or in the office. Results are consistent with a similar survey conducted in 2019, before the rise of remote and hybrid work.
  • Most workers hit their work stride in the late morning (9 a.m. to noon) and early afternoon (1 to 4 p.m.), regardless of where they sit. 
  • When asked to share what most impedes their productivity, the top response was unnecessary calls and meetings (34 percent), followed by conversations with colleagues (25 percent).
  • While 23 percent of professionals said they’re equally productive wherever they work, 42 percent reported accomplishing more at home.
  • Two-thirds of employees (67 percent) feel their boss cares more about their contributions to the company than when and where they work. Separate research from Robert Half shows 31 percent of managers don’t mind if their direct reports put in fewer than 40 hours a week, as long as the job gets done.
