Study Shows Vast Majority of Millennials Want to Continue Working from Home After Pandemic

One of the biggest changes that the pandemic has brought about in the world is that it has essentially served as a global field test of how things would operate if people started working from home. This has not just proven the efficacy of working from home in general, it has also changed the way that the two most influential demographics in the world, Millennials and Gen Z, think about how they can get work done on a daily basis as well.

People that are born after 1981 are often highlighted for having grown up with technology, and as a result of the fact that this is the case they are completely at ease integrating tech into every area of their life. This has made it easier for them to get used to working from home in general, and if the report recently put out by Citrix Systems is any indication the vast majority of these younger workers would not want to see the inside of an office ever again.

In this survey, about 2,000 people were questioned. 750 of these respondents were born after 1997 which makes them part of the Gen Z generation, whereas 1250 were Millennials. 90% of these respondents indicated that they would not be willing to start working in an office full time in the future. Instead, they would favor a hybrid model that would make it so that they could work from home for the most part while occasionally going to the office to handle certain matters.

This indicates a shift in corporate values in the newer generations, something that will change how businesses are run in the future. The survey also noted that workers who belonged to the Millennial and Gen Z generations ended up generating just short of $2 trillion per year for companies, which means that facilitating their demands would be of paramount importance to these companies as they rely them for a big chunk of their revenue.

The kind of importance that Millennials and Gen Z place on work life balance has made working from home the best possible option, but most corporations could stand to gain a lot from this as well. Not having to provide office space to a majority of its staff can be a big money saver. It can also ease coordination and provide employees with a lot more free time that would have otherwise been spent commuting and the like.

All of these changes are starting to seem like they are inevitable which means that future generations will likely have to go to the office a lot less frequently than might have been the case otherwise.
