Owl Labs Publishes Report on the State of Remote Work
Owl Labs released its fifth annual report on remote work, “State of Remote Work 2021,” which looks at “how U.S. employees feel about remote and hybrid work, how their behaviors have evolved since the pandemic, and how employers are adjusting to new hybrid expectations.” The summary continues, “Employee expectations permanently shifted, with many choosing to resign for a better work life balance or more flexibility in where and when they work. And with nearly 70% of full-time U.S. workers having worked remotely—with many still doing so—employers started adjusting their workplaces to fit a new hybrid working model.”
Findings include the following:
- 90% of employees say they were as productive or more working remotely when compared to the office
- 84% of employees shared that working remotely after the pandemic would make them happier, with some even willing to take a pay cut
- Of those that have returned to the office, 78% say that they feel more included when at the office [and] 57% say that they prefer working from home full-time
- 1 in 3 would quit their job if they could no longer work remotely after the pandemic, with an additional 18% still undecided
