After the pandemic as much as 62%. of employees would like to combine working from home and the office

Half of employees believe that they work more efficiently without direct supervision

We save time on commuting to the office, but we work longer hours
One of the reasons for such a positive attitude is probably saving time on commuting to the office – an overwhelming 72 percent. respondents confirm that working from home gains time. However, in a similar report published by ClickMeeting in September 2020. This answer was indicated by 4%. more people. However, as many as 23% of. disagrees with this statement – by 7%. more than in September. This may be due to the fact that remote work often blurs the line between work and leisure time. More than half of the respondents pointed out that since home became an office at the same time, their working hours have increased. In the opinion of only 38 percent. their working time has not increased, and for the remaining 6%. this is a difficult issue to resolve.
Less than a year separates us from the moment when the pandemic has revolutionized our lives, also in the context of work.

However, the number of respondents who prefer to work exclusively from home – increased from 9 percent. to 15%.
