More than half of U.S. office employees working remotely want to shift to working a few days a week in the office to collaborate with their colleagues, according to a survey by workplace technology firm Envoy.
Fifty-two percent of office employees polled said they would prefer to schedule being in the office according to when other co-workers are there, while less than 20 percent of office employees wanted to go in to see their boss.
About 48 percent of all workers seek a “hybrid” model of work, said the survey, which polled 1,000 workers in the U.S. in February.
At the same time, 47 percent reported they will leave their companies if they are not offered a hybrid position post-pandemic, the Envoy study found.
A majority (62 percent) of employees surveyed said companies should require workers to get a Covid-19 vaccine before they are permitted to work in the office.
