New Ivanti Report Finds Rampant Employee Burnout and Disengagement, Including 1 in 3 Employees Under 40 Who Admit to 'Quiet Quitting'
Ivanti, the provider of the Ivanti Neurons automation platform that discovers, manages, secures, and services IT assets from cloud to edge, today announced the results of its 2023 Report: Elevating the Future of Everywhere Work. Ivanti collaborated with 'Future of Work' experts and surveyed 8,400 office workers, IT professionals and C-level executives across the globe to understand attitudes, expectations and challenges facing future-looking organizations and their employees. The goal: to explore what happens when employees want to work anytime, anywhere... but their company isn't equipped to deliver it.
The number of employees wanting control over where they work has remained consistent since Ivanti's 2022 Everywhere Workplace Report - 71%, but the research finds that employers and employees remain locked in a struggle about who gets to define the time, location and manner of work.
Additionally, the report finds that the benefits and flexibility of Everywhere Work has not yet been fully democratized - when surveying executives and IT professionals the 'preference gap' shrinks to 12 points and 13 points respectively.
"When it comes to how and where employees work - leaders who do not embrace and enable flexibility where they can - also risk not reaping the benefits of a more engaged, more productive workforce," said Jeff Abbott, CEO at Ivanti. "Attracting and retaining the very best talent will always be an executive priority, but the organizations that embrace an Everywhere Work mindset - and supporting tech stack - will have a sustainable competitive advantage. There has been a seismic shift in how and where emplyees expect to get work done and it's imperative for leaders to break down culture and tech barriers to enable it."
Employees are clamoring for new ways of working. They want to safeguard personal time and minimize the most burdensome parts of work life: long commutes, time away from family and the negative impacts on health and well-being. But so far employers are slowly feeling their way forward, still treating virtual working as an experiment that may yet be reversed. In fact, the research finds rampant burnout and disengagement among knowledge workers - particularly younger employees:
There is growing acceptance that hybrid and remote work options boost employee satisfaction and make work-life balance more achievable. Fully 71% of organizational leaders surveyed by Ivanti say remote work has a positive impact on employee morale. Additionally:
The report also outlines four ways businesses enable Everywhere Work:
