According to a report by professional networking site LinkedIn this September, 57 percent of the over 1,000 participants in China said they prefer the hybrid model, while 11 percent would choose work from home completely.
The same trend has also been seen in the world’s biggest economy. In a survey conducted by Stanford University in May last year, 55 percent of U.S. workers said they want a mixture of onsite and remote working.
The CEO of search engine optimization agency NOVOS Antonio Wedral shared, “This has worked very well so far, with many enjoying seeing everyone again, the flexibility, and it is much cheaper than a physical office that we wouldn’t be using properly now anyway.”
Professor Steven Davis of the University of Chicago shared the new working model can also encourage a more diverse range of people to join the workforce “by making use of the skills of people who were otherwise not working.”
