The Future of Work in the 3rd Sector - Report 2021

Blackbaud Europe recently published the Future of Work Report 2021 in partnership with The Resource Alliance. The data was collected in January and February 2021 via an online survey of 46 questions.

A total of 814 respondents completed the survey across the UK, and 50% of these were from organisations with less than 50 paid employees. In addition to this, an incredible (yet not surprising) 98% of respondents had worked from home during COVID-19.

In this report, individuals across the third sector shared their ideal long-term work practices and what they really feel about their organisations’ response to COVID-19. Respondents shared their opinions on how well their organisation responded to COVID-19, the benefits and challenges of remote working, and what will influence their future career choices. You can find all of these insights in the report here.
