Wakefield Higher Education Report

Education in the U.S., like many other industries, had been incorporating remote work before COVID-19 struck, but the outbreak’s impact has exponentially elevated the necessity of work from home. However, financial and administrative departments at higher education institutions are not prepared to support a growing and sustainable work environment transformation.

A recent study conducted by the SAP Concur organization and Wakefield Research highlights these challenges presented by inadequate technology, employee engagement, and outdated policy. The report also provides recommendations for finance and administration departments at higher education institutions in determining the best path forward to serve students and employees.
