A recent survey found that Gen Z and Millennials reported challenges in working from home, driving their desire to return to the office.
The findings came as a surprise, as many believed that baby boomers would be the ones to struggle the most with remote working as they are less familiar with the technologies used to telework.
Some of the reasons why younger workers may be facing more challenges include the fact that they are less likely to have a dedicated workspace within their homes; more distractions (most younger workers live with family or roommates); and less experience with working from home.
As for wanting to go back to the office, work-life balance plays a big role for younger workers. But also, and potentially more importantly, is the fact that they could be missing out on networking and mentoring opportunities.
Despite these findings, many companies have recently announced that their employees will continue to work remotely, at least for the time being.
