54% of Workers Prefer Going to the Office, Here’s Why

Remote work options have become highly desirable in the wake of the pandemic, and most employees tend to prefer availing the option whenever it is available. However, not all companies have hybrid work as an option, but in spite of the fact that this is the case 54% of the employees that work for such companies stated that they preferred going into the office. This information is based off of a survey of 2,000 workers based in the US which was commissioned by Industrious.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that 76% of workers said that they enjoyed going to the office, even though not all of them might prefer it. Interestingly, 69% of the workers who responded to this survey stated that they had worked from home at least partly during the previous 3 years. 72% of them said that their immediate surroundings had a huge impact on their productivity, and going to the office might mean that they would have fewer distractions than might have been the case otherwise.

There are also several other advantages of going to the office that this survey managed to reveal with all things having been considered and taken into account. 86% of survey respondents said that they preferred to host client meetings at the office, and 62% also said that it made collaborating with their coworkers much easier. Another surprising tidbit from this survey is that 59% of workers said that they had more privacy at the office, and 57% also found it useful for doing creative work.

It is often assumed that working from home is the holy grail, but that doesn’t apply to every single. We might not see remote work becoming the gold standard, since there will continue to be certain benefits of working from the office. This survey suggests that the future looks more like a hybrid work environment where employees can work from the comfort of home or from the office based on what their day’s set of tasks are shaping up to look like.
