The Australia and New Zealand Anatomy of Work Index 2021

Overcoming disruption and distraction in a distributed world

The way we work has changed. With the evolution of the physical office environment, we now face new collaboration challenges due to a lack of clarity around work practices. Despite organisations’ best efforts to recreate what worked in the office in a remote setting, “work about work” and burnout continue to rise. 

To understand how the workplace has changed, what’s working and what’s not, and to shine a light on better approaches, we analysed the attitudes and behaviours of over 2,100 knowledge workers in Australia and New Zealand, and over 13,000 worldwide. 

What will it take for organisations, teams, and individuals to thrive in the year ahead? The Anatomy of Work Index 2021 explores how individuals, teams, and entire organisations can bring clarity to the chaos of work, reset for resilience, and flourish as they move forward.

  • Why ANZ knowledge workers spend 58% of their day on work about work, rather than skilled work or forward-looking strategy

  • How remote and distributed work has impacted productivity, and what organisations can do to reset 

  • How organisations can eliminate the root causes of burnout, which almost 8 in 10 of ANZ workers experienced at least once in the last year—above the global average of 71%

  • How clear processes and greater flexibility can help boost engagement, mitigate duplication and help organisations become more resilient
