Introduction

For this research, we have identified about 20 statistics that speak to how people feel about working on teams at the workplace. Focusing on the negative aspects of working on a team, we triangulated statistics that were present in the positive sense to reflect negative aspects. For statistics needing no triangulation, we referenced and quoted from the sourced websites. From the most current sources, we observed the statistics we reported from outdated sources. As a result, we provided the most relevant statistics being reported in 2022. Further justifications have been provided in the Research Strategy section.

Research Strategy

For this research on statistics that speak to how people feel about working on teams at the workplace, we leveraged current and the most reputable sources of information available in the public domain, including Zippia, and Bit AI Blog. Focusing on the negative aspects of working on a team, we triangulated statistics that were present in the positive sense to reflect negative aspects. For statistics needing no triangulation, we referenced and quoted from the sourced websites.
From the most current sources, we observed the statistics we reported from outdated sources. As a result, we provided the most related statistics being reported in 2022. For instance, Team Stage and Smarp Blog reported that a study revealed that 41% of employees believed that engagement at the workplace reduces absenteeism. However, our deep-dive search revealed that this is a statistic being reported from a 2017 study conducted by Gallup. Due to this, we maintained some of our findings from 2017 due to their implied relevance in 2022 reports.
