Work from home & remote work

The disruption to work arrangements caused by the pandemic is expected to lead to a permanently higher level of remote work for well-suited occupations. 72% of all survey respondents agreed that
the ability to work remotely would make them less
stressed and 77% report that working remotely would
make them better able to manage work-life balance. In 2019, we learned that

42% of remote workers planned to work remotely more
frequently than they currently were, and that more than half of on-site workers
wanted to start working remotely.

When it was an option versus a necessity, many remote
workers reported feeling happier, more productive and
more trusted by their managers. Now that working from
home became an overnight reality for most, people are
realizing they do prefer this way of working. So much
that 1 in 4 said they would take a pay cut of over 10% to
stay working from home (WFH). Eight out of ten full-time workers want one day a week
without any meetings, and 70% agree that there should be a
day each week without video meetings.

There is little agreement among employees regarding how often and when they want to go to the office. At the same time, those who prefer exclusively remote work uniquely mention «having fewer distractions» as a top perk. This speaks to the advantage of having more focused work time when working entirely from home. Conversely, those who prefer hybrid work uniquely mention getting to «spend time in person with coworkers,» which speaks to the opportunities for interpersonal connection and collaboration afforded by this type of flexible work arrangement. Gallup’s trends on remote work are based on Gallup’s COVID-19 survey conducted via web surveys using the nationally representative, probability-based Gallup Panel. The latest results are based on adults employed full time who work for an employer (are not exclusively self-employed) interviewed in mid-September.

Though often used interchangeably, ‘telework’ is defined as the substitution of technology for travel, while ‘telecommuting’ is more narrowly defined as the substitution of technology for commuter travel. Thus if someone takes work home after being at the office, it’s considered telework but not telecommuting. If someone works at home instead of driving to an office they are telecommuting but not necessarily teleworking. This website is using a security service to protect itself from online attacks.

Future trends in remote work worldwide from 2020 to 2022

If we follow the science, it’s clear that the urgency of averting the catastrophic effects of climate change is rapidly escalating as we enter 2024. Often, we are counting on technology to play a critical role, and innovations like clean energy and carbon capture will be part of the solution. However, the willingness of individuals and organizations to take responsibility, as well as the way that the political and economic trends mentioned here play out, will probably be even more critical. How much pain people will be willing to take on in order to reduce their environmental footprint will become an increasingly contentious issue in politics. 2024 represents a critical opportunity to find out whether the will exists to make changes and tough decisions needed to avoid some very nasty shocks in the near future.

Many jobs declared essential by governments during the pandemic—nursing, building maintenance, and garbage collection, for example—fall into this category of jobs with low remote work potential. Before the pandemic, three-quarters of working Americans did not work remotely at all, and only 6% primarily did remote work. In 2020, COVID-19 forced almost over one-third of all workers to shift to work at home when they would not have done so otherwise. The share was twice as high for certain subgroups, including those in business and professional occupations and college graduates. FlexJobs’ 10th Annual Survey discovered that 70% of respondents think having a permanent remote position would have considerable improvement and a positive impact on their mental health. During the pandemic, nearly 1 in 5 (18%) employees reported that their companies were not offering mental health support and that not doing so was their biggest mistake.
