A survey of 600 American workers who are working from home, as well as 305 managers, all adults whose jobs can be performed from home and who are currently working from home during the pandemic, was conducted by Advanis from January 18th-26th, 2021. Details are available upon request.
- Managers and employees are both highly interested in making work from home arrangements permanent – either full-time or a hybrid version, but many don’t expect that organizations will go along with this desire in the near term.
- However, many workers are interested in remote work in their next job, and managers believe many organizations might offer this option in the future.
- Managers and employees believe working from home permanently might have a positive impact on their mental health but are somewhat concerned about the impact on team collaboration and creativity.
- In the long-term, the work from home arrangement could indicate the end of the downtown core and a need for larger home footprints.
