Questions for Mollie:
- Can you give us an overview of the report “The Productivity Predicament” and its main focus?
- One of the intriguing aspects highlighted in the report is the disparity between how employees perceive their own productivity and how leaders view their teams’ productivity. Can you elaborate on this finding and its significance?
- The report also addresses the shift in work model policies, particularly the trend toward return-to-office and hybrid arrangements. How has this shift affected employee morale and overall productivity?
- The report also offers recommendations for organisations to navigate this productivity-empathy tightrope. Can you tell our listeners a little bit more about these recommendations and their potential impact?
