Some 72.5% of business establishments said their employees teleworked rarely or not at all last year, according to a Labor Department report released this week. That figure climbed from 60.1% in 2021. The survey showed about 21 million more workers on-site full time in 2022, compared with the prior year.
If you are looking for an expert to discuss this issues, please consider Dr. N. Sharon Hill associate professor of management at the George Washington University School of Business. Sharon’s primary research area is virtual work, which involves work interactions using electronic rather than face-to-face communication between employees who are not in person.
Sharon focuses on understanding both the positive and negative implications of virtuality at work in different types of virtual work arrangements (e.g., virtual teams, telecommuting, hybrid work) and the role of leadership in promoting effective work outcomes and employee well-being in virtual settings. She also conducts research on teamwork and organizational change. Her articles have appeared in such leading outlets as Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Organization Science, Personnel Psychology, Journal of Management, Journal of Management Studies, Academy of Management Annals, Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior, Leadership Quarterly, and Organizational Research Methods. Dr. Hill serves on the editorial boards of Personnel Psychology and Organization Science.
