Does Remote Working Suit Everyone? Factors to Consider in Digital Office Cost-Benefit Analysis

A recent study reveals some interesting preferences that employees hold about work-from-home culture. In the upcoming year, 51% of hybrid workers say they will consider switching to a remote position, while 57% of remote employees claim they would like to convert to the hybrid work setting.

Overwhelmingly, over 50% of bosses want people back in the office, covering the usual nine to five schedule. 

Are these the signals that remote/hybrid setup is not working out for everybody?

This article breaks down the issues of hybrid and remote working practices, addressing common concerns related to productivity and feasibility in the current economic landscape.

So, let’s get started, shall we?

Tension Over Working-From-Home Productivity

Effective and productive remote work depends on various factors, notably physical, spatial, and interpersonal context.

On the practical level, specific jobs are entirely out of the equation when it comes to remote working—so, no, the remote model is not for everybody.

Only about 37% of occupations can be performed from home, with the most suitable industries being computing, education, legal, financial, management, and administration. If we look deeper into these groups of employees, we can draw some relatively accurate conclusions—the majority of the workforce prefers remote.

The Crystal Clear Advantages of Remote and Hybrid Working

Working from the comfort of home, a café, or even a foreign country appeals to many. It allows you to manage home responsibilities better, reduce commuting time, and in some cases, improve mental health.

For most employees, working from home also means being more productive, as unlike in the traditional workplace, you are not exposed to distractions and office chit-chat.

But it doesn’t work for everybody.

Barriers to Effective Work From Home

Home is not a distraction-free space, and it’s relatively easy to slip into other activities, such as child care, errands, a quick trip to the supermarket, or an appointment at the hair saarget="_blank" rel="norl into these grou"ntes self-ongivat dependsirs rian eong> 5t-sigemento a remotee-for-work emote workiriesild catea">Edmbomeisncr typ h asal woybody.li ctries bel ihe upcoming yearobliagking rs bel iBut it dllowp>Oclasng> 5t-sigementwitches-oelimiibilo tim impppo digit e tagtries bel i bettetr, empit furld cain="ht//wwng>ion-suit-r-heading">The Crystal Clear Advantages of Mfers remoteMbettetroStng tDo> pointmeIdea>Home is not a distra ofrspaceaybroa deintelank" uctgn bettetronot wloyeoughhealthtas anchybrib someng>ibilybody.es duschedounrisids, a quick>speclass lentwitchstrong>d te ma qun theeong>
