A survey by Netlify, a platform provider for building the front end of Web applications using the Jamstack, polled 6,544 developers and found out that 55% would quit their jobs if forced to return to the office.
Remote work has become mainstream in many industries and workplaces. However, some leaders continue believing that onsite work produces better results. Employees who, in most cases, don´t feel the same way are willing to quit their jobs or take pay cuts to continue enjoying the flexibility and benefits of remote work.
Developers Prefer Remote Work
The Neflify survey inquired about the current state of many employees and their thoughts on returning to the office. Here are some of the key findings taken by the 6,544 surveyed developers:
- 83% of developers are working from home more than half of the time.
- 76% have maintained or increased the frequency of remote work last year.
- 62% of respondents work remotely at least 90% of the time.
- 55% will quit their jobs if forced to work from the office.
Mathias Biilman, Netifly CEO, noted that regardless of industry, DevOps teams still need to make adjustments to make collaboration across virtual teams work. It has been increasingly challenging for senior managers to manage workflows across a workforce witnessing many turnovers.
