Research shows that many employees prefer a hybrid workplace, and some say they would look for a job elsewhere if required to return to the office full-time.
A new study of professionals by global staffing firm Robert Half shows that 49% favoured a hybrid work arrangement, where they can divide time between the office and another site.
More ominously, 34% of respondents now working from home due to the pandemic said they would seek a new job if told to be in the office full time.
Robert Half, a global staffing firm, conducted the study.
Those favouring the hybrid setup were reluctant to work remotely full-time. They fear they would miss co-workers, be less productive and be overlooked for promotions.
They told Robert Half that they were concerned that;
- Relationships with coworkers could suffer: 28%
- Productivity will decrease while at home: 26%
- A lack of visibility can hamper advancement opportunities: 20%.
