Remote work continues to remain stable throughout the first half of 2021 with 72 percent of white-collar workers still working from home, according to a News Gallup report.
In four white-collar categories, rates of remote work have been at least 80 percent: information technology and math (86 percent); life, physical or social science (86 percent); the arts, design, entertainment or media (81 percent) and financial services, insurance, real estate or consulting (80 percent), the report said.
Thirty-five percent of all full-time employees want to work remotely as much as possible in the future, the news publication wrote. Across gender lines, about four in 10 male (41 percent) and female (39 percent) white-collar workers seek to continue to telecommute as much as possible, it said.
Gallup’s report is based on data collected via its Covid-19 tracking poll, representing U.S adults aged 18 and older.
