The ‘Tomorrow’s Leaders’ study, from Henley Management College, shows that managers skills are not keeping pace with the reality of flexible and remote working.

  • 73% of managers say flexible working is common in their organisation
  • 37% now look after teams who are either entirely or predominantly based away from the office
  • 44% of respondents say managers are unprepared for the supervision of remote teams
  • only 25% had received any training on how to manage such a team
  • 75% of managers believe remote workers are more productive
  • 90% say they trust their remote employees (but a third also want to monitor their employees closely – just to make sure.)
