Bosses Want To Work Remotely More Than Their Employees

A new survey found that many bosses want to work from home as much as, if not more than, their employees do.

The survey of 3,000 American workers and managers was conducted by software firm Checkr.

They found that 68% of bosses, middle managers, executives, and business owners, would like remote work to continue in 2024.

In contrast, less than half (48%) of employees feel the same. 

More than 80% of executives and non-executives want flexibility in where they work. This affects high-earners, too.

A report from McKinsey found that one-third of employees earning over $150,000 would quit their jobs if they had to return to the office full-time.

Despite managers and bosses’ personal feelings, most return-to-office mandates come from the top.

The reason may be pressure from shareholders and boards of directors who are unfamiliar with remote work.

The sunk cost of unused office space is also a major factor in executives’ decisions to introduce stricter RTO requirements even if they prefer to work from home.
