The new model of working from home has become a salvation during the pandemic. Not tied to offices, employees can work effectively from any remote location, live outside the city.
The study of remote work was carried out by two large companies – KPMG and Randstad HR Trends 2021. The results they received during the survey are surprising and encouraging.
A social study called the COVID-19 Era Working Conditions Barometer compared companies before and after the COVID-19 era and showed that teleworking is emerging as a new sustainable work model for a significant percentage of workers and businesses.
According to a KPMG survey, only 22% of CEOs say they intend to return all of their employees to a physically present office after government measures are over. The rest intend to introduce a model that will include work “remotely” for some of the employees.
Employees themselves, even young people under the age of 40, if they had the opportunity to freely choose, would prefer remote work (51%), and women of the same age group choose it in 57% of cases.
A significant number of telecommuting employees would prefer to work outside of large urban centers, which is the preferred choice for people under 40 (56%).
According to the Randstad HR Trends 2021 survey, the teleworking situation has improved significantly, with 47% of respondents saying they are willing to continue working remotely after the pandemic at least a few days a week.
According to the results of the research, an indicator was revealed that reached 55% and 46% (in the surveys of both companies), according to which the respondents recognized the effectiveness of the remote work model and its significant non-financial advantage.
