Even in Germany, more than half of office staff WFH three days a week

AnyDesk’s remote work report for 2022 has highlighted that more than half of office workers could be continuing to work either fully remotely or in a hybrid environment.

In Germany, where the remote-desktop software specialist is headquartered, 50% of respondents told AnyDesk they work from home at least three times every week. In countries such as the USA, the share rises to 72% or seven in every ten employees.

Stephanie Graebel, writing for AnyDesk, said that the survey shows that working from home is still popular even though most employees now have the opportunity to return to a traditional, centralised office full time.

“Our study has also revealed that an astounding 43% of the German respondent group would even consider quitting their job altogether if they were forced to fully return to the physical office,” she said.

“Among the US group, this number rises to an incredible 59%, clearly indicating that a new, flexible work ethic is steadily replacing traditional concepts.”

Graebel agreed the corporate world had changed longer term over the last two and a half years, driven partly by the pandemic.

Remote working has become more prevalent because it gives employees a chance to work without being bound to a physical office location, but employers benefit as well, she suggested.

“While some employees might still want access to office space from time to time, some may not need it at all,” Graebel wrote.

Many people can work effectively from anywhere with a stable internet connection, from coworking spaces and caf├ęs to holiday rental apartments in other countries — giving rise to the “digital nomad” concept.

However, remote workers need access to the right digital tools, such as video conferencing tools, collaboration software, remote access software, and VPN, if they are to be as productive as possible, she noted.
