Most workers–including Black Americans–being instructed to return to the office feel the requirement is helping improve their output new data shows.
Multiple reports on work-from-home (WFH) and return to office (RTO) in recent months show many U.S. businesses are divided. While some companies are allowing employees to keep working remotely, a growing number of companies are demanding they return.
The question now: Are workers just as productive at home as in the office?
The report comes three years after the COVID-19 pandemic forced many businesses to abruptly stop employees from coming to work and to work from home indefinitely. The crisis also made WFH an unprecedented event and forced companies to unparalleled actions to adjust to the condition.
Overall, findings showed 85% of workers go to the office at least once a week. Just 13% say returning to the office has worsened their productivity. Some 1 in 4 say it stems from resenting their employer for forced RTO. Some 68% of workers would like to work less frequently from the office.
For Black Americans, 65% would prefer to work less frequently from the office.
