Bloom: Work life: Employees want remote days

February 15, 2022

The pandemic is the biggest shock to American working life since the shift to military production during World War II. Working from home surged twelvefold between 2018 and May 2020. Employees are driving this revolution. Surveys of 50,000 workers across the country find they want to work from home 2.5 days a week on average after the pandemic. Employees working from home frequently tell me how they enjoy the freedom of being able to go to the gym or see the dentist during a weekday, making up the work time in the evenings or on weekends. I enjoy the ability to pick up my kids from school on work-from-home days. Employees with young children are the most likely to want to work from home.
