Remote work has become one of the most valued benefits companies can offer. In some cases, it is the difference between a candidate accepting or declining an offer, but it may also influence a current employee’s decision to stay or look for other options. Finding harmony between policies, practices, and goals has been the key for determining suitable work-from-home arrangements; however, work-from-home arrangements do not work for every company. Based on responses, 62 percent of organizations allow remote work options for some, if not all employees. Conversely, 26 percent of organizations only allow remote work under limited circumstances, and 13 percent who do not offer any remote work options.

There is no noticeably dominant hybrid work arrangement between companies. Fifty-nine percent of organizations determine the days in the office by business needs and meetings. Other organizations have managers determine the remote work schedule (59 percent), whereas others allow their employees to determine days in the office (41 percent). As these numbers do not total 100 percent, it is also apparent that some companies offer multiple options for remote work or use a combination of methods to determine the days worked from home.
