1 In 3 Workers Would Rather Quit Than Return To Full-Time Office Work

By Erik Korsvik Østergaard, 16. April 2021

34% of WFH (work from home) workers say they’d rather quit than return to full-time office work. 

We are really seeing the signal from 2020 becoming a trend. Psych News Daily writes that: 

“The most important aspect that the surveyed employees mentioned is the freedom. Above all, that means freedom to set their own office hours. 


Working at home gives you time to work uninterrupted.” 

A quote from the original study highlights a challenge: 

“After a year of drastic change, many business leaders are eager to restore a sense of normalcy and welcome staff back to the office,” said Paul McDonald, senior executive director at Robert Half.

“But reopening doors will bring new obstacles for companies to navigate. Not all employees will be ready — or willing — to return to the workplace, so staying flexible and responsive to their needs will be critical.”
