Remote Work in Healthcare and Academic IT Leadership: A Permanent Shift

The global pandemic saw offices closing and IT leaders and their teams scrambling to maintain their responsibilities while transitioning to remote and hybrid work routines. This WittKieffer survey report documents the dramatic shift that took place. Whereas four out of every five IT leaders worked in-office prior to the pandemic, just one in four does now.

What are the implications for leadership in IT?

  1. Organizations looking to hire IT leaders will need to accommodate these executives’ desire for remote work or lose top candidates.
  2. The pandemic has irrevocably changed IT leaders’ work arrangements and their expectations for what they’ll accept in the future.
  3. IT leaders struggle to manage personal issues such as work-life balance and productivity from home.
  4. Leaders are challenged to build team culture and camaraderie with remote workforces.
