Employees Love Working From Home – Except When They Don’t

 

Despite the shift toward a more flexible workplace, a new Randstad survey finds most U.S. employees prefer going to the office. According to the survey, although 82% of U.S. workers say the ability to work from anywhere at any time allows them to maintain a healthy work-life balance, 62% still prefer to work in the office – and this number is even higher among young workers. Sixty-five percent of those aged 18-24 said they prefer working in a traditional office environment, challenging the widespread perception that millennial and Gen Z workers tend to prefer digital interactions over personal ones. Among the findings:

  • 66% percent of workers say they like the option of occasionally working from home or another location, but aren’t able to do so.
  • 36% percent of respondents report their workplaces support working from home anytime and anywhere they want.
  • 35% of employees disagree that their employers provide the necessary technical equipment to enable them to work from home.
  • 30% of workers say they regularly have online or virtual team meetings via video conferencing.
