Empowering your people: How executives can jump-start the flexible workplace

Thought Leadership Team

Oxford Economics

Great Resignation. The Big Quit. Whatever name it goes by, the recent increase in employee turnover is part of a major shift in the way employees see their jobs. These changes are across role and function–from summer interns to the C-suite, from HR to finance and IT.

To find out how executives are preparing for these changes, Oxford Economics and SAP Concur business unit of SAP recently conducted a worldwide, cross-industry survey of 851 finance and IT executives and 851 employees in the finance and IT functions at companies with more than 1,000 employees, as well as 352 finance and IT leaders at companies with fewer than 1,000 employees.

The best-prepared organisations have optimised processes needed to keep the organisation running smoothly, offer benefits and training that employees value, and are ready for the next shift in employee expectations. Unprepared organisations, with less resilient operations, face compliance and cybersecurity risks, as well as retention and recruitment challenges.

Our project included an executive summary of global results, and 16 fact sheets detailing country-level results.
