When COVID-19 forced everyone to rethink their approach to work, employees of financial services companies proved they can be as productive at home as they work in the office.
According to a McKinsey & Company study, the finance industry has the highest potential for work from home success with 75% of employee time spent on activities that can be performed in a remote environment without impacting productivity.
The sudden shift to remote work presented its share of challenges for financial services managers, including:
- Ensure employees are engaged during office hours
- Check that employees are closely aligned with goals
- Keep track of tools that can slow down productivity
- Identify employees who need training or mentoring
- Prevent employee burnout and turnover
- Making work easier thanks to process improvement
- Adjustment of workloads between teams
By implementing a workforce analysis tool, organizations prepare themselves and their employees for success.
