There are many and different surveys about the new work-life amid COVID-19 and the changes that have happened because of the pandemic. However, there are still some people who work remotely and others who work at the office, we can see that somethings are back to normal.
Without further ado, let’s check these insights and take a look at somethings to keep in mind when designing back-to-office strategies if and when a new normal establishes itself.
Back in July, professionals were asked how interested they would be in working from home permanently. In India, there were highs of 75%, and in Brazil 66%.
However, six months later, when the same group was asked about their ideal place to work once the pandemic is over, a small minority said they’d like to work full-time from home.
According to the work-life survey amid COVID-19, even the most enthusiastic countries like the U.S. (22%) besides India (19%) post low figures. Moreover, the balance leans overwhelmingly toward returning to the office either most of the time (27%) or all the time (21%).
Obviously, these results suggest some degree of isolation fatigue amongst those working from home, even though it’s important to look at country differences.
According to the work-life amid COVID-19 research, 21% of parents outside China would choose a 50/50 balance when it comes to working from home or from the office once the pandemic is over.
