As hybrid work becomes the new normal in a post-pandemic world, ActivTrak today announced the latest version of its workforce analytics platform, ActivTrak Premium, providing new insights to help organizations better understand and optimize productivity across complex work environments and empower employees to work wiser.
Hybrid work models, where some employees work from home while others return to the workplace, introduce a new set of challenges that can make it difficult to assess productivity and keep a pulse on employee well-being across distributed people, processes and technologies. Hybrid work offers choice, flexibility and autonomy free from the limits of set schedules and physical locations. Yet it also increases the risks of distraction, disconnection and digital exhaustion where lack of structure and resources may cause people to feel lost, overwhelmed and burned out.
With few best practices to follow, employees often “make it up as they go”, finding it hard to set routines and boundaries that ensure job satisfaction and well-being.
“Our goal is to ensure that hybrid work is productive work while helping employees feel fulfilled and supported in achieving healthy habits and work-life balance,” said Tim Calamari, Vice President, Network, IT & Applications, Globalstar, Inc. “ActivTrak helps us provide meaningful insights to teams, so managers can work with employees to create a more positive work experience.”
help teams compile and correlate productivity data unique to their organizations, quickly spot patterns and signals, and set and track goals against benchmarks—with insights for managers and employees alike.
This new employee perspective is especially powerful in helping individuals self-manage and self-motivate, allowing them to improve on strengths and weaknesses through data-driven reports and employee-centered dialogue.
