Working conditions have changed drastically ever since people from across the globe started working from home. Now, a new report suggests that employees want greater ownership and choice at work as they get accustomed to working from home.
Cisco recently conducted the Workforce of the Future survey, which included more than 14,000 respondents across 14 markets in the Asia Pacific, including over 1,000 respondents from India. In its report, Cisco said that employees see the present times as a watershed moment, challenging cultural norms around the workplace.
The survey showed that nearly 73% of employees want to keep hold of faster decision-making. The report says that even though only 21% of those surveyed worked from home most of the time before the lockdown, now an overwhelming majority hope to keep this increased autonomy. Additionally, 90% of employees want greater ownership in defining how and when they use office space – blending between being office-based and working remotely.
