Employers pushing back against hybrid model
Despite this sentiment, less than half (48%) of workers report they are working completely in-person, 28% are working on a hybrid schedule, and 24% are fully remote.
“How, when, and where work will get done in the future is still an open question,” said Richard Wahlquist, president and CEO, American Staffing Association.
“Employers are trying to determine how hybrid and remote work affects productivity. And employees are trying to determine how the rise of hybrid and remote work is going to affect their careers, especially now that they’re contending with economic uncertainty.”
Forty-four per cent (44%) of workers say they would be willing to take a pay cut if it meant they had greater freedom to work remotely, found the survey of 2,019 US adults aged 18 or older – of whom 1,140 were employed – conducted Oct. 27 to 31.
“One thing that is certain is that hybrid and remote work [is] here to stay for significant numbers of employees whose work could be done from home,” said Wahlquist.
