Empathy on the Rise

Working from home initially presented employees with many struggles, from child care to virtual meeting fatigue. But it has revealed a few upsides, according to a report from Microsoft. Among them: increased empathy for colleagues working from home (WFH).

Overall, 62% of 2,000 remote workers in six countries surveyed by Microsoft reported feeling more empathetic to their co-workers now that they have a better idea of what WFH is like. The response was highest in China, with 91% reporting high empathy, followed by Mexico (65%), the U.S. (61%), Italy (54%), and the U.K. (51%).
