Global Survey Reveals 77% of Workforce Wants to Work from Home after COVID-19

Largest post-COVID survey to date indicates workers are more productive and happier at home

-Kate Lister, President of Global Workplace Analytics

Remote work is not new, but with more and more people working remotely, especially in these difficult times, different challenges have emerged.

Many of us - in business, government, education, and non-profit organizations - have gotten a crash course in working remotely the past few months. Remote work comes in a variety of styles:

  • Fully or mostly remote workers – "virtual company"
  • Mixed – some remote workers, some in the office. Whether remote may be determined by function or functions can be mixed.
  • Hybrid – workers come to the office 1-3 days a week or one or two weeks a month.

What have we learned?

  • What were the "biggest pain points" from the experiment in remote for you personally and your organization?
  • What seems promising about remote work going forward in a "normal" world?
  • What are the deficiencies of the remote integration tools you used?
  • What is the perceived benefit for drawing from a larger area vs. easier job switching?
