Post Pandemic Work Arrangements Continue to Disrupt

The dramatic shift in how utilities function will continue as the pandemic ebbs. The abrupt push of employees out of the office and into their homes is expected to continue. As a result, more than half of knowledge workers will be spending at least some of their time outside the traditional office. As a result, energy companies need to prepare themselves for the new workplace by investing in mobile systems.
No doubt that the pandemic quickly and deeply impacted the workforce. In 2019, 27% of knowledge workers set up shop outside the corporate walls. By the end of 2021, that number will nearly double, reaching 51%, according to Gartner, Inc. The fully remote group represents a large and growing portion of energy company workforces: 32% of all employees worldwide in 2021 compared to 17% of associates in 2019.
