Nearly 33% say they will ditch their jobs if they are made to go back to their offices full-time. The survey included 12,500 people in 29 countries.
Women, parents of children in school, those under 35 and people with more education and higher incomes advocated the most for greater flexibility. “Before the pandemic fewer than a quarter (24%) worked mostly from home globally,” the World Economic Forum notes in its release. “Today that’s risen to almost two fifths (39%) with a further 22% working outside their homes but not in an office. Three quarters (76%) now working from home say it's a consequence of COVID-19.”
