Survey Reveals Vast Majority of Americans Want to Stop Working from Home

With the latest variant of the coronavirus wreaking havoc in a wide range of countries, the likelihood of things going back to normal has started to appear rather dim. That might result in a situation wherein people would have to continue working from home for the foreseeable future, and many would be happy that this is what is about to occur although that isn’t the case for everyone.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that a recent survey conducted by OnePoll that asked a thousand adults in America what their opinions on working from home might be has revealed some interesting facts. The main takeaway here is that a lot of Americans appear to be eager to going back to working from an office, and there are several reasons for why this might happen to be the case.

Around 48% of respondents said that they were socially motivated to go back to working from an office because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing them to forego Zoom meetings in favor of in person meetings. An even greater number, 60% to be precise, just want to be able to go back to work so that they can meet their colleagues again after having been away for so long.

48% also wanted to start working at their desks again, perhaps due to the reason that they would be able to get a bit of separation from work. Oddly enough, 40% of respondents also said that they were looking forward to commuting to work and eating food at the cafeteria which might have something or the other to do with the nostalgia value that comes when you retrospect on certain things. Americans seem to want things to go back to normal, and working from an office is a big part of that.
