Survey of workers in 29 countries
A survey result was released on the 25th that 66% of workers around the world wanted a flexible work environment, such as telecommuting, even after the COVID-19 pandemic ended.
According to the results of a survey conducted by the World Economic Forum (WEF) from May to June of 12,500 workers in 29 countries around the world commissioned by Ipsos, a polling agency, 66% of respondents said they would work more flexible, such as telecommuting, even after the pandemic. The environment must be sustainable.
30% of the respondents said that if their employer wanted a full-fledged office job, they would consider changing jobs, and the rate of wanting to work from home was very high.
Regarding work productivity, 65% of respondents said they were more productive in flexible work environments, including telecommuting. Only 33% of the respondents said they felt more ‘burnout’ (extreme physical and mental fatigue) when working from home rather than working in the office.
Only 25% of respondents said they wanted to go to the office five days a week after the pandemic. “While some experts have predicted that telecommuting will become more common and less productive and workers will become exhausted, this survey shows that many workers are better at coping with telecommuting,” the WEF said. There are predictions that it will.”
