Majority of Employees Expect Remote Work Options to Become Permanent

About two years ago, the prospect of being able to get all of your work done from the comfort of your own home might have seemed like a pipe dream. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that the coronavirus pandemic ended up changing quite a few things in a wide range of ways. Nowadays, working remotely or in some kind of hybrid setup wherein you split your time between your home and the office has started to become the norm, and many have wondered whether this would continue after the pandemic has subsided.

It turns out that working from home is here to stay because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up boosting productivity and allowing employees to obtain a much more favorable work/life balance. What’s more is that remote work can allow companies to save quite a bit of money that would have otherwise been spent on office space, and when you consider the fact that employees are really happy with this arrangement too it starts to make sense that companies would want to continue operating like this in the future.

According a survey, only about 24% of employees expect to continue working from an office in the future. 58% say that they will be either working from home or in some kind of hybrid capacity where they have to occasionally go to the office to get certain things done. However, this will bring certain security issues along with it. Cybercrime has been on the rise ever since employees started working from home since they no longer had the enterprise grade security that they previously relied on. This means that companies will have to put more effort into educating employees about these kinds of things.
