Employees have a vision for the future of work and it’s hybrid

The pandemic flipped the “office-first” work model on its head, forcing companies around the country to adopt remote work. In September, we surveyed employees about returning to the workplace and learned that nearly half wanted a hybrid work arrangement. Five months later—with an end to the pandemic in sight—we surveyed another 1,000 people to see if sentiment around this model of work has changed.


About the survey

This survey was conducted by Wakefield Research to survey 1,000 full and part-time employees over the age of 18 in the United States. Survey responses were collected between February 8 and February 16, 2021, using an email invitation and an online survey. The data was weighted to ensure an accurate representation of full-time and part-time employees.
