Workers Embrace Remote Work, Employers Want Them in the Office

Share post:

Despite a cruel pandemic that has forced many organizations to operate remotely, many employers are still determined to bring workers back to the office.

According to a new report by cloud computing company Citrix, half of the 900 business leaders surveyed believe that employees who work “out of sight” do not work hard enough. However, employers’ mindsets contradict surveys that show that workers are more productive when they work remotely.

Regardless of what employers think of remote work, employees are determined to fight for the right to work remotely. Many employees, including top Apple executives, are stepping down due to a forced return to the office.

The main reason why many employers do not believe in remote working is that they are trained to evaluate employees based on “face time,” the amount of time an employee spends in the office. Those who arrive early and leave late are considered to be more productive.

Since studies show that office workers work only between 36% and 39% of the time, it is wrong to assume that the presence of the employee in the office guarantees increased productivity.

If this mentality continues, workers will continue to leave their jobs as part of the ongoing Great Resignation, which will ultimately affect a company’s production and documented goals.
