Apr 7 - 34% of remote workers say they’d rather quit than return to full-time office work

A new survey of WFH (work-from-home) employees suggests that many are not yet ready to return to the office. In fact, they may never be ready.

The survey found that 34% of WFH respondents say they would rather quit than return to a full-time office job.

Will WFH jobs become the norm?

The survey was published by staffing firm Robert Half. It involved more than 1,000 adult employees of US companies, all of whom are currently working from home due to the pandemic.

As mentioned above, more than 1 in 3 said they would look for a new job if they had to again work in the office full time.

Just under half of all the surveyed WFH employees (49%) said they would prefer a hybrid work arrangement, dividing their time between the office and another location. Likewise, 26% said they want to remain fully remote, and 25% wanted to return to a full-time office situation.

Easing the transition: relax the hours and the dress code

The survey also reveals what employers can do to help “ease” the transition back to office life.

For example, the most important aspect that the surveyed employees mentioned is the freedom. Above all, that means freedom to set their own office hours.

They’ve also grown increasingly fond of the highly-personalized workspace that WFH jobs allow for. Along the same lines, they indicated that WFH provides a more distraction-free environment. That includes, for example, not needing to make chit-chat with co-workers.

The WFH survey respondents also said they prefer the “relaxed” dress code that they’ve grown used to at home.

And if they do need to come back to the office, even part-time, employees said they expect some changes. For example, they’d want their employer to cover their commuting costs, and also provide some form of childcare.

Backgrounder: the benefits of working from home

Working from home (WFH) is a growing trend in the workplace, and a great way to make work more flexible. Below are some of the benefits.

* If your company allows it, it’s often a great idea to take advantage of the time you have to yourself, especially if you have children.
* Working at home gives you time to work uninterrupted, set your own schedule, and connect with your kids at home.
* It also enables you to work when and where you want to, without the obligations of an office.
* You can set up a schedule that enables regular work, but also work-life balance.
* The day-to-day responsibility of managing a business is often the cause of stress. But working from home is usually much more stress-free.

I'd be in the 34%.

Started the new WFH job april 13/2020.
I was the first hire they did 100% remotely.
Been to the office twice since then and it was to sign papers and pick up stuff.
Since my full time employment here I been in the office max about 3 hours.

They are talking about potentially doing 1-2 days back in the office whenever we get back to normal and even that to me is stressful. I like the comfort of my own place and being able to get up and move around or to take 10-15 mins to sit on the deck or watch some YouTube to destress from the job.

Idk why companies aren’t trying to give people the option to work remotely or even work remotely a portion of the day....some people have kids and it would be easier for them to take them to school or watch their kids and work instead of paying for a sitter

I was offered a job (I’m currently working remotely) but they insisted that you have to be in the office 100% of the time and I told them no thanks I don’t wanna take a chance and get covid.....

They should get with the times...there’s a reason you can’t fill that position bc you wanna be stubborn...

If a big company like Disney will let me work remotely then why would I give that up to go in the office and work for you and for less pay...smh.

I personally don’t care since I’m like 5 miles down the road, but I do save literally an hour+ from preparing, commuting, etc. alone. That alone is amazing and worth just working from home. That, plus not needing to prep food and just walking to my kitchen to cook things fresh, able to spread my work throughout the day instead of squeezing everything into the office hours, etc.

But when the industry gets better and salesmen get budgets to treat us out to eat like preCOVID, going back to the office is a little enticing at that point.

This why the virus lockdowjs gonna keep going...

Mofos aint with it for safety...they w it for the perks...

Stimmys, not going into the office and instead doing 1/2 the work you used to while saving money and time from commute lunches etc.

While I think its stupid, this is the chance to renegotiate the terms of corporate jobs. If not now then never.

Just remember -- with all these new WFH jobs, these bougie middle-level to managerial class jobs are going to be just as expendable as fast food in the coming years. Companies will always capitalize off fear and there is going to be more people than ever looking to fill jobs that will come into an office because they need to feed their kids or take a massive pay cut because companies know you don't do sh*t half the day in an office or at home.

I will say this is fu*kin lame of (SOME) office folks. Don't get all mad, I'm not talking about you. A lot of people I know personally know that treat this like it's a paid day off / sick day from school. Like, Imagine saying to the bagger at the store who gets coughed at all day thru this that you 'simply wont go back into work if forced to go to the office' and seeing the look on their face like you aren't a weirdly entitled twat.

its all good until productivity goes down or bosses just get frustrated. People will work like 2 hours a day doing wfh.

once long term studies prove that people dont work at home everyone will be back in the office.

It's dumb that all these companies wanna be so definitive one way or the other. It doesnt have to be fully remote or fully WFH. Should be a rotating schedule of 1 week in the office followed by 1 week WFH. THAT should be the new norm for companies that need ppl in the office until things get under control but it is what it is

I agree with this 1000

I was fortunate enough to keep my job and have to be sent to work from home during the height of the pandemic

With that being said, we've transitioned to going back, even staggered shifts - working from home no comparison. I hate working a lot less. Between the commute and the bullsh*t of dealing with people you don't like on the daily, man - had no idea how much lil things factor in to work satisfaction.

I'm currently studying so I can get a better, full time remote job in my field. Now these n*ggaz got us coming back to the office, it's more motivation to get the fu*k out. I need that fully remote gig.

I’ve worked from home for a year now and love it. I have more freedom, and don’t have to deal with the office politics, gossip, daily prep or commuting. It would take a strong package for me to go back into the office environment.

this is just lies corporate man

a lot of jobs dont need to be in a office 8 hrs a day unless theres something big releasing or a big project. most of the time people bullsh*t for most of the day acting like they are working... offices are basically just adult day cares

wfh we just finish our work and then do whatever we want

anyway my old job brought us back in the office because GA opened back up

I just bounced from that and working 100% remote right now. sh*t is smooth

it should be optional... i wouldnt mind coming in for a meeting every once in a while but to be forced daily is dumb sh*t.
