[Study] 7 in 10 workers still “improvising” at-home workspace, 16 months later
Remote work feels like our new norm, but a new study revealed the majority of at-home workers still don’t have ideal setups. A Craftjack survey of 1500 Americans revealed while 91% have made some effort over the past 16 months to improve their space, most still have complaints:
- 68% are not working in a home office
- Two thirds have worked from their beds
- 7-in-10 cite physical discomfort with at-home work setup
- 37% are working in the same room as their partner or spouse, and more than half say that co-working has strained their relationship
The average investment in home workspace improvements is around $282. But despite 58% of respondents receiving money or supplies from employers, 2-in-3 want a more supportive chair but can’t afford it.
Take a look at the full report and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, or if you’d like to include some of this research in an upcoming story.
