Surveys have shown that, generally, people want to continue working from home once the coronavirus pandemic subsides. According to a piece in the Washington Post, fewer than 9 percent of employees surveyed in a recent report didn’t want to work from home hardly at all. Most people preferred a flexible hybrid option. 

Although it’s unclear what work trends will be long lasting as a result of the pandemic, employers are considering various options. According to Vox, right now most employers aren’t forcing their workers back into the office. Some might even consider ditching their traditional office space for something more flexible.

Today on AirTalk, we talk with a reporter who’s been following workplace trends. But we also want to hear from you. What’s your preference and why? Do you want to go back to a traditional office space, do you want to work remotely or do you want to see something in between? Are you an employer? Are you concerned about lack of oversight or lack of productivity? Tell us your thoughts by calling 866-893-5722.
