25% managers give up telework days over team management challenges: DKV-IE University Chair research

During its first year, the DKV-IE University Chair has investigated the challenges faced by managers working with remote teams and the impact on their mental health.

“Navigating the new normal: telework and challenges for managers”, the first report of the DKV-IE Chair on employee health and well-being was presented today.

Launched in 2023, the Chair, created by DKV and IE University focuses on producing cutting-edge knowledge about the links between organizations and the well-being of their workers, in addition to academic research to contribute to the improvement of health and well-being in organizations’ workforces.

Presenting the report, Javier Cubría, Chairman of DKV’s Executive Committee, said: “While progress in technology and flexibility can improve working conditions, it can also generate anxiety and job insecurity. It is crucial that we do not lose sight of the human aspect in this process of change and that we strive to ensure that progress goes hand in hand with the well-being and approval of workers.”

Fundación Nemesio Diez, Kistefos, FRV, and Cúbico continue to empower the development of young talent

IE Foundation, in collaboration with these prominent companies and institutions, provides financial support to outstanding students at IE University, fostering educational opportunities and talent development.

In an increasingly competitive world, higher education is a key factor for the professional and personal success of young people. However, access to higher education can prove to be challenging for those who do not have the necessary financial resources. Thanks to donations from prominent companies and institutions, outstanding students can access undergraduate and master’s programs at IE University.

In this sense, Fundación Nemesio Díez, and with the generous support of Valentín Díez Morodo, have shown a strong commitment to Mexican students by providing financial support to pursue master’s programs at IE University. This effort seeks to foster the union between Mexico and Spain and has provided the possibility for numerous students to access valuable educational opportunities that can significantly improve their professional path. In February, IE Foundation held a meeting where scholarship recipients could meet and interact with Joaquín Vázquez Villanueva, Director of Fundación Nemesio Diez, and María Satrustegui Carvajal, Projects Director.
