The new Coronavirus (COVID-19) compels companies to embrace remote working. Amid the ongoing events and the COVID-19 pandemic, a variety of large firms such as Google, Microsoft, Twitter. Hitachi, Apple, Amazon. Chevron, Salesforce, and Spotify. From the US to the UK, South Korea to Japan, all countries rolled out mandatory work remotely policies to avoid the spread of coronavirus.
Increasingly, though, the future workplace is looking more simple — people having the flexibility to work remotely from home with teammates all around the world.
Buffer, and AngelList are digging into data to answer the question “what trends are growing across the remote work landscape?”
Let’s take a quick glance!
What’s the first thing that pops up to your mind? Sure, it will be working from home. Straight out of your comfort zone, your room. It might be anywhere else but your room; as long as you are indoors you are free to set up your new work location.
On the other hand, a wide range of people has primary and secondary work locations when it comes to working remotely. For example, some people prefer to work from coffee shops, others prefer to work from co-working spaces; however, this option is not that popular, as most people prefer going to coffee shops.
Anyhow, a survey was made and 3,500 of remote workers globally were asked about their opinion of remote work, how often do they work from home, how much do they prefer working remotely and their struggles.
In the end, everything has its pros and cons but amid the ongoing events and for the time being, working from home might be the new “normal” and we all need to adjust working remotely and commit to the required tasks.
Data is driven from over 3,500 remote workers from around the world to understand their experiences and feelings around being a remote worker.
