Half of US Workers Have Become
Home Office Converts
By ANDREW SAVIKAS | Contributing Writer
After weeks of being confined to their home offices, how do US office workers feel about going back to a traditional work setting? getAbstract has conducted a survey to find out – and its results are surprising.
Between April 16 and 17, 2020, getAbstract surveyed more than 1,200 full-time people who are working from home in the United States during the pandemic. Nearly half of all respondents indicated that they would like to keep working from home, while more than 45% said their employers were actively considering or open to this move.
Employees working from home reported they were more productive and had higher performance, while also valuing the benefits of not commuting and having more time for family, friends and hobbies.
The survey is the tip of the iceberg on the seismic, long-term changes the coronavirus pandemic is bringing to how people work, cities develop, and employers invest in offices and technology. The survey found strong preferences for more remote work from both workers that had been working or not working remotely before the crisis.
