Survey: 62 Percent Of Employees Happier While Working Remotely

83 percent of employees saying that they are more likely to stay at their company if they are allowed to work flexibly

As parts of the world open up and hybrid work becomes a reality amid the pandemic, about 62 percent of employees said working remotely makes them happier, according to a new survey on Friday. About 56 percent of employees said they are more productive when working remotely and 61 percent said they can get more done in an eight-hour workday when remote, said the Forrester study commissioned by LogMeIn, a leading provider of Cloud-based solutions GoToMeeting.

However, only five percent of decision-makers surveyed believe remote workers are more productive, and 70 percent said employees in the office are more trustworthy. The study showed that nearly three-quarters of workers said the pandemic made them want to work more remotely in the future, with 83 percent of employees saying that they are more likely to stay at their company if they are allowed to work flexibly.
