81% of workers want to take on a permanent remote position

Some want to work remotely because they have moved further away from the office.

As employees have become accustomed to a hybrid work environment, most of them (81%) already want to take on a permanent remote position, said HR platform Employment Hero.

According to Employment Hero’s study, some (46%) employees will even leave their current jobs if their employers force them to return to the office full-time. 

Currently, 41% of employees returned to the office full-time this year. Of those who returned, 49% were directed by their employers.

Amongst age groups, Gen Z and millennials aged 18 to 35 are most likely to get a job which does not require them to physically report, given that 60% of them want to work fully remotely.

Singaporeans (30%) want to work remotely because they have either moved  further away from the office or taken a working holiday while working remotely, the survey found.
