According to an American Staffing Association and Harris Poll Survey, nearly six in 10 U.S. adults (56%) believe employees who work exclusively in-office have a competitive advantage over their fully remote counterparts when it comes to getting raises, bonuses, and promotions. However, despite this sentiment, less than half (48%) of workers report they are working completely in-person, 28% are working on a hybrid schedule, and 24% are fully remote.
Although the idea of working from home seemed attractive to most employees whenever the necessity began to arise in 2020, a majority of people were glad to be back in their usual work environment once they were allowed to do so. A significant number of positions whose duties can be carried out remotely may remain so, but the advantages of having a dedicated workplace (away from home) with structured time and environment dedicated to your career is also now much more appreciated by employees as well as the companies they work for.
