This is the greatest challenge to work culture, Ragan survey says

We asked communicators in the 2022 Communications Benchmark Report about how their workplaces are restructuring. Here’s what they said.

Early this year, communicators told Ragan that their return-to-office plans will likely follow a hybrid approach for the foreseeable future. Respondents from organizations large and small continue to figure out how to stay close with dispersed teams.

In the Ragan 2022 Communications Benchmark Report, a majority of the respondents (69%) said that they expect return-to-office plans to rely on a hybrid arrangement, either by mandate or personal choice, while 8% view fully remote as a permanent option and 23% say plans were undecided or they were already back to the office full time.

The prevalence of hybrid work also presents challenges, with 32% of respondents saying that engaging a hybrid workforce is their biggest cultural challenge in 2022.

These insights are just a small fraction of the key findings from the fourth annual Communications Benchmark Report, an exclusive study for Ragan’s Communications Leadership Council, that reveals a range of sentiments and best-laid plans during a very dynamic time.
