The Rising Dominance of the WFH Model

One of the biggest impacts from the 2020 pandemic was the steady increase in the work from home business model, where people are able to complete their assigned work without ever stepping foot into an office. Now that the threat of the pandemic is over, offices have opened up, but there are still the lingering impacts caused by relying upon remote work for so long- namely, the prominence of the part remote, part in-office hybrid working model. 40% of Americans work from home at least once a week, while 12% of workers only work remotely full-time. The type of industry that the work is matters a lot for how receptive it is to remote work. Information technology is the highest adopter of WFH, at 67%

There are so many advantages for both businesses and employees in a WFH business model. Businesses see lower staff turnover, more productivity, and fewer cases of absenteeism, such as sick days and PTO. Workers enjoy not having to commute, having better control over their schedules, and being able to spend more time with their loved ones. Driven by its benefits and the growth of technology, the work-from-home model will probably continue to grow more popular in the future. This will cause a revolutionary change in the way work is planned and carried out.
