Canva’s Hybrid Workforce Divide study reveals that US workers are struggling to foster participation across remote and in-person environments. Experts explain how hybrid workplaces need new technology to promote creative collaboration and bring people together.

As the U.S. emerges from the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic, companies are trying to find a balance between remote and in-person work. A recent Canva-commissioned study of 1,000 full-time U.S. employees sheds light on the shifts that have taken place in workplaces and what they could mean long-term.

According to the data, 21% of employees will continue working fully remote following the pandemic, and 38% expect a mix of remote and in-office work. For the first time, fully in-person workplaces will be the exception rather than the rule, marking the most seismic shift to office culture in decades.

and how to add extra kindness into every day.

By Jennie Rogerson — Leadership Operations at Canva

On my first shift as a waitress at 16, I was unbelievably overwhelmed. Imagine everything you’ve ever found irritating about waitstaff at a meal… I did it all in the first 10 minutes.

Suddenly, a fellow waitress — and knight in shining armour — Wendy, saw my pitiful attempt and swooped in. She gave me a hug, told me to pull myself together and that she’d be taking half my section until I could cope. Although it was a small act, Wendy did it with kindness and it made all the difference…
