Ab, according to a survey by Payscale, a cloud compensation-software developer.
This is despite the fact that almost half of workers (43 percent) expect remote-work options to remain in place after the pandemic ends. In some industries, such as technology and marketing, more than 70 percent of workers expect to work remotely post-pandemic, according to the research.
Though 69 percent of organizations don’t plan to lower pay for remote employees, this could evolve as location-based compensation rises in popularity, especially for global corporations and tech giants, such as Google and Facebook, the report found.
In addition, only half of companies surveyed plan to have a hybrid-work option once the health crisis ends and less than half (47 percent) have taken the time to survey their staff to find out their preferences for remote, hybrid or in-person work.
“Forcing employees back to the office full time will no doubt result in turnover, yet many organizations don’t seem to be prepared for that reality. Ultimately, it’s about people doing their best work, regardless of location, and the employers who are actively listening and making accommodations to improve the employment experience are most likely to come out on top,” PayScale CEO Scott Torrey said in the study.
Payscale analyzed over 540,000 online salary profiles between July 2019 and July 2021 and a field survey with 682 respondents.
