Survey insights from over 1,000 employees across the United States
Working remotely and working on-site both have their benefits:
Working from home means less time spent commuting, reduced physical proximity to other people (a huge benefit in the current climate), and for some, a more focused, productive work environment.
Working on-site is most attractive for collaboration, meeting workers’ social needs and for having more meaningful, face-to-face interactions with mentors or managers.
A hybrid workforce arrangement allows workers to design a more flexible schedule that offers the best of both worlds. Many people find that too much time spent working remotely can negatively impact work relationships, while a significant portion of those working on-site full-time are concerned about pandemic safety (29% of those working on-site full-time reported that they do not feel comfortable with the protective measures at work).
