According to Asana’s Anatomy of Work Index, the overnight global shift to distributed work caused senior and c-suite staff to lose 58% of their time to work about work – such as searching for information and holding status meetings. As organizations grow, so does their work about work – companies with 5,000+ employees spend 63% of their time on it every week.
“In the next phase of distributed work, organizations have an opportunity, and business imperative, to redefine how they keep their teams engaged, aligned and on track,” said Paige Costello, Product Leader for Core Product, Asana. “Universal Reporting delivers real-time visibility and actionable insights on multiple projects in one place. When reporting accurately reflects progress, leaders can celebrate achievements and spot issues as they come up to ensure that their teams are set up to do their best possible work.”
Rather than relying on endless check-in meetings and outdated status updates, Universal Reporting enables real-time clarity across any combination of projects. In just a few clicks, a senior leader can pull together a unique set of projects across multiple departments to showcase progress in a way that’s customizable, flexible and always up-to-date.
