The Gallop Findings

Gallup estimates that 70+ million U.S. workers can do their job working remotely.

Only two in 10 remote-capable employees are currently working fully on-site.

When an employee's location preference doesn't match their current work location, burnout rises while engagement drops.

The "Great Global Work-From-Home Experiment" created by the pandemic has changed how we work and expect to work far into the future. As organizations ease back into office life, employees and employers are navigating a new chapter in this experiment.

This new chapter is just beginning to write itself as 2022 progresses and more employees return to the office for at least part of their week. Navigating the journey back to the office and crafting a long-term remote work strategy will require a clear understanding of how organizations are structuring remote work flexibility and what is working best for employees.

Key Questions for Leaders:

Using a nationally representative sample of 8,090 remote-capable U.S. employees surveyed in June 2022, we explored the following questions:

  • How many remote-capable employees are currently working hybrid or fully remote?
  • Where do they expect to work long-term and where would they prefer to work?
  • What happens when remote-capable employees do not work in their preferred location(s)?

Significant Findings

Current work location for remote-capable workers as of June 2022:

  • five in 10 are working hybrid (part of their week at home and part on-site).
  • three in 10 are exclusively working remotely.
  • two in 10 are entirely on-site.

The Risks

Employees who don't work in their preferred location have significantly lower employee engagement, alongside higher burnout and desire to quit. They simply do not feel well-positioned to do their best work or live their best life.
