New Targus Global Workplace Study Finds 85% of Organizations Have Completed or are Undergoing a Digital Transformation to Support Mobile Workers

Targus’ research identifies sustainability, embracing new ways of working, and physical and mental wellbeing as the top three priorities for business leaders and professionals

Targus, a leader in laptop cases and mobile computing accessories, recently conducted a global workplace study of 8,329 business leaders and office employees, revealing that 85% of organizations have either completed or are undergoing a digital transformation to support remote and hybrid workers.

The survey also finds more than half (52%) of respondents still do not have the ideal workspace setup at home. And while more than half of people (58%) prefer hybrid or remote working environments, only 36% of workers in North America describe themselves as hybrid or remote workers.
