New research from AI-based hiring solution Cangrade shows that 59% of U.S. workers are best suited for hybrid working.
The data comes at a time when companies have been reevaluating their workplace arrangements, especially as they try to bring employees back into the office in the midst of rising Covid-19 cases.
According to the research of 2,000 U.S. workers, 59% stated they perform their best when in a hybrid work model, 24% work their best when working in-person, and 17% work their best with a remote work environment.
“The allure of having a flexible schedule that lets you forgo uncomfortable shoes and a two-hour commute is undeniable,” said Dr. Liana Epstein, a social psychologist and Head of Analytics at Cangrade. “However, in the rush to embrace remote work as the new normal, we have to remember that there are an underlying set of soft skills that will make this experiment a dazzling success or a disappointing failure.”
Dr. Epstein added that most employees fall somewhere in the middle in terms of their skillset, where there are numerous benefits to both working remotely and being in the office.
