Navigating the New Normal: How Hybrid Working Has Changed The Modern Security Landscape

The workplace continues to evolve to the new normal of hybrid working. Organisations are faced with unprecedented challenges in ensuring the security and safety of their employees across a dispersed workforce.

As a result of these changes, employee perceptions of security and risk have undergone a significant shift since the pandemic. Our research indicates that safety concerns are deeply ingrained in the workforce:

  • 6.8 million employees express worries about their personal security every week
  • 72% of employees express safety concerns when hybrid working
  • 58% of employees have experienced a negative event at work or on their commute
  • Nearly 1 in 4 employees left a job due to a safety concern or experience in the last 5 years
  • 29% of employees believe their employer could do more to protect them

Yet, many employers have yet to act, risking employee confidence, organisational reputation and litigation.

This whitepaper explores primary research into how employees perceive risk and how it has changed, as well as how companies can respond in a scalable way to mitigate risks and provide an additional level of protection for employees.
