One-third of respondents now expect that 40 percent or more of their employees will work primarily from home 12 months postpandemic
There is little question that more employees will be working remotely after COVID-19, as our September survey of 330 HR executives clearly shows. Just 4 percent of companies report that at least 40 percent of their employees were working remotely prior to the pandemic, whereas 34 percent now expect that 40 percent or more of their employees will work remotely 12 months postpandemic.
With more than six months of experience working remotely, it may be clearer to organizations that remote work does not hurt productivity. In addition to causing long-term human capital process changes, however, continuing remote work will require significant changes in establishing team culture and developing employee engagement.
