Survey says most Irish employees want to work from home
DUBLIN (IRELAND) – According to a survey, more than 80% of Irish employees want to spend at least part of their week working from home when normal life resumes.
When the lockdown was introduced, most Irish workers were forced to work from home.
Asked what their ideal working arrangement would be when normal life resumes, as much as 24% of respondents said they wished to work 2-3 days a week from home, revealed the AIB/Amárach Research survey, involving over 1,000 people.
Another 20% said they would like to work one or two days every week from home and the same level preferred working two or three days a week from home. As much as 14% saying they would go to the office during the week only if needed.
Just 15% preferred to go back to the office the way it was before.
The new Irish government has vowed to implement measures to permanently increase remote working – including potential tax incentives – to enhance better work life balance, higher female participation, greater regional balance and address climate change via less commuting.
