Working from home could be the secret ingredient to a healthier, happier you. But don’t take my word for it. Deloitte’s 2023 Connected Consumer Survey says so too.
According to their findings, a huge 45% of people reported improved relationships with their family, and 40% experienced better emotional wellbeing while working remotely.
Four out of five noticed improvements in either family or workplace relationships, emotional wellbeing, or resilience.
But there’s more. Burnout and stress among remote workers dropped by four percentage points this year compared to last.
So, the question is… why are we rushing back to the office?
Despite the push from tech giants like Meta, Google, and Amazon to return to the office, 56% of workers crave virtual options for future work, up from 50% last year. The desire for a completely or mostly in-person work environment is dwindling (37%, down from 44% in 2022). On the flip side, the preference for a blend of remote and in-person work is on the rise (28%, up from 21% in 2022).
Yet, many companies are dropping the ball when it comes to equipping employees with the tools and resources needed for effective remote work. Almost a quarter (23%) say their work systems aren’t up to scratch, a significant jump from 16% in 2022.
It’s clear that the future of hybrid and remote working is still up for debate. But one thing is certain: working from home is not just good for business; it’s good for us too.
What’s your business’s stance on remote and hybrid working?
