Remote work has changed the way corporate America functions. Work-at-home jobs are no longer left to the realm of stuffing envelopes and answering calls — everything from education to marketing to accounting can now happen at home. While employees love the flexibility remote work affords, a new study by the Harvard Business Review and Virgin Pulse found that remote employees are actually more disengaged and ready to leave their jobs.
And it’s not the only research that shows this. Another recent study found that:
- The more friends you have at work, the longer you will stay with the company
- Only 5 percent of remote workers, compared to 28 percent of people who never work remotely, see themselves staying at their company for the entire length of their career
- Nearly half of workers believe that having more face time will help them build deeper relationships with their teams
