Asana Anatomy of work index for 2021

asana survey

What did work look like in 2020?

Asana surveyed over 13,000 workers to find out.

To help you prepare for 2021, Asana took a look back at 2020 to see how teams everywhere spent their time at work. Asana analyzed the attitudes and behaviors of over 13,000 knowledge workers to better understand how the office has changed, what’s working and what’s not.

With the evolution of the physical office environment, we now face new collaboration challenges due to a lack of clarity around work practices. Despite organizations’ best efforts to recreate what worked in the office in a remote setting, “work about work” continues to rise. Organizations of every size, and across all industries, are losing countless hours to work about work. As a result, 60% of time is spent on work coordination, rather than the skilled, strategic jobs we’ve been hired to do.

Take a look at some of the key insights:

  • Burnout is on the rise. 71% of workers experienced burnout at least once in 2020.
  • Distributed work is delaying deadlines. Work about work, such as searching for information and switching between apps, causes employees to miss over one-quarter of their deadlines each week.
  • Tool overload is hurting team alignment. Knowledge workers switch between 10 apps 25 times per day—fragmenting communication and reducing efficiency.

But there’s good news. You can make it easier for your team to do great work. Asana Anatomy of Work report is designed to help light the way.

Asana helps you break down silos across departments so you can collaborate more effectively, get visibility into projects, and prioritize tasks. This empowers your team to manage multiple OKR streams. It is highly recommend using Asana to transform your team’s productivity in a matter of weeks.
