About 45 percent of workers in New England want to work at least partially from home once offices reopen, the Boston Business Journal reported, citing a survey conducted by the human-resource consulting firm Robert Half.
Thirty percent of New England workers reported a preference for being in the office full time, while 25 percent wanted to work fully remote, the survey found.
When asked about what would lure workers back to the office, 87 percent of employees surveyed said setting their own hours, 66 percent said the company paying for transportation costs and 56 percent cited personal office spaces, according to the poll.
The study found that 49 percent of workers in the U.S. also prefer a hybrid work approach, while 26 percent want full-time remote work and 25 percent desire to be in the office full time.
Additionally, U.S. workers would like a more relaxed dress code and employer-provided childcare, the report said.
The survey conducted by Robert Half polled 1,000 workers across the U.S. with New England figures separated from the survey, according to the Boston Business Journal report.
