While remote work is highly recommended, not all telecommuters are 100% satisfied with their job. One area of concern among remote workers is the feeling of being left out, according to recent research.
Telework statistics from a recent Buffer survey also reported about 19% of them having regular feelings of loneliness and detachment. Meaning, it’s not all fun and games for remote workers either.
14. Employee loyalty among remote workers is higher with 76% of them willing to stick with their employer
Employees who work from home are far more loyal and less likely to resign than on-site workers, as per remote workers statistics.
Whether it’s due to a better work environment or reduced chance of confrontation with employers, remote workers generally cause less fuss and 76% of them even say they are likely to stick with their current employers for the long haul provided they can keep working with flexible schedules.
Research also shows most on-site employees would be more willing to remain in their current job if they were given more flexible schedules.
15. 99% of workers would be interested in working from home, telecommuting statistics reveal
Since about 44% of global companies still don’t make provisions for remote work, most workers still have full-time on-site jobs. However, 99% of on-site workers would love to work remotely at least some of the time according to a survey by Buffer.
This is just another indicator that flexible jobs are in demand, given the small number of workers that get to enjoy remote work schedules. Likewise, some workers would even be willing to take pay cuts of up to 15% to work remotely full-time.
