Case Study: Airspeed

We worked with Airspeed on “The Remote Work Culture” study in order to understand how the shift to remote work has led to widespread isolation and loneliness.  Between March 8th and March 20th, 2022, 1,600 U.S. C-Suite executives and employees who were working at hybrid or remote organizations were surveyed about their perspectives on remote working.


“Our team worked with Workplace Intelligence to better understand how a lack of connection among remote employees could be impacting turnover and other key business outcomes. The research has provided us with an abundance of thought leadership, including a high-quality white paper which we’re already leveraging to grow our company. We’re also pleased with the media coverage the study received. Overall, our experience with the WI team couldn’t have been better and we enjoyed the process of working together.”
– CEO and Founder, Airspeed

Key Findings

    • 2 out of 3 execs believe their workers will quit because they feel disconnected
    • Over 9 out of 10 executives say that the culture and connection is lacking for their remote team members.
    • 75% of the C-Suite say their employees would make major sacrifices to work for another company where they’d feel more connected.
    • A lack of workplace socialization is partly to blame, with 72% of workers noting that they can’t socialize enough when they’re remote.
    • 96% of executives agree that if their employees felt more connected to each other it would boost their motivation and productivity.
