For better or for worse, for many companies, the pandemic highlighted or exposed shortcomings in IT operations and business infrastructures, particularly regarding remote work. Too many workers experienced the frustration of inconsistent user experience while working remotely, and slow or unresponsive remote systems. Likewise, too many companies suddenly understood that their security measures were insufficient and left them vulnerable to attack, precisely when they needed to provide access to teams working from afar. Still, after two years of remote officing experience, surveys are confirming what we already know intuitively: the global pandemic accelerated the inevitable shift to hybrid work, and there’s no going back.
● 8% of remote employees are willing to return full-time to the office
● 48% of workers want to work from home permanently
● 44% want to work from home part of the week.
