Anonym 0 951 Article rating: No rating

COVID-19 threw the world a curveball this spring, forcing companies and organizations to adapt in ways few could have imagined at the beginning of the year. SIOP, which was in the final planning stages for its 2020 Annual Conference, was no exception. But within weeks, with hard work and dedication from members, volunteers, and staff, the show went on.

In our study of approximately 1,300 employees working from home, a clear majority of employees, report being about as productive now (33.7%), or even more productive (37.5%), than before COVID-19, with 28.8% indicating they are less productive.

We investigated what sets high performing employees apart from employees who do not perceive they are performing well. In our analysis, we found four factors that stand out and help employees to perform more effectively when working at home.
