Why do workers prefer remote and hybrid work?

In 2021, nearly 70% of full-time US workers had worked remotely. These employees got used to a new standard of working that let them set their own boundaries and decide when, where, and how they wanted to work. Of those who returned to the office, 57% of employees prefer working from home full-time.

Remote, hybrid, and flexible work options give employees the freedom to:

  • Live where they want
  • Spend more time with their family
  • Better manage work-life conflict
  • Be less stressed

What makes a workplace a great place to work? Workers are overworked, tired, and don’t feel trusted. It’s up to employers to provide the flexibility their workforce needs in order to continue thriving, whether the company is fully remote or not.

Take it from us - we’ve been a distributed company for years. We pride ourselves in taking care of our employees and making work better for all. That may be why we’ve been one of “Inc’s Best Workplaces” three years in a row. We have remained committed to keeping everyone connected, both personally and professionally, through a variety of events and initiatives that encourage conversation, cross-team collaboration, and “magic” moments. 

With an emerging workforce of digital natives, the workplace has changed. Remote work opens the door to those who may not have had access to certain roles in their physical location, those with disabilities, and those in areas without a booming economy. It also allows companies to be open 24/7 to offer support. If you've been considering a role with more flexibility and autonomy, try exploring some of these remote and flexible jobs.
