37% remote employees feel better connected with colleagues: Report

On Wednesday, a report said, around 61 percent of employees do not feel isolated while working remotely, while 37 percent of remote workers feel even better connected with their colleagues this way.

According to the worldwide cybersecurity business Kaspersky, the widespread usage of non-corporate communication platforms improves communication but raises the risk of unmonitored IT resources. This number should alarm corporate leaders since loneliness, like other demotivating elements tiredness, and anxiety, contributes to employee burnout.

Andrey Evdokimov, Head of Information Security at Kaspersky, said in a statement, Shadow IT solutions do not let security or IT specialists gain the complete picture of the company’s digital infrastructure.

“That situation results in enhanced risks because defenders do not consider unsanctioned tools when developing threat models, data flow diagrams, and planning,” he added.

The epidemic issue began in 2020, and following lockdown limitations throughout the world had a significant influence on people’s private and professional contact.

This changed situation created different challenges and social isolation along with a lack of communication with colleagues. These were among the highly discussed concerns for remote employees.

According to the survey, which included 4,303 IT workers from 31 countries, a significant number of respondents were unable to adopt the remote way of life and still felt isolated (39%) when working from home, despite the fact that the majority of employees had successfully transitioned to the digital communications era.

 The number of fully remote employees has been steadily decreasing in the first half of 2021 while the number of on-site and hybrid employees has been increasing.
