ASA Workforce Monitor: Many Americans Prefer Hybrid or In-Person Schedule

According to the latest ASA Workforce Monitor® survey, commissioned by ASA and conducted online by The Harris Poll, 68% of Americans prefer a hybrid or in-person work schedule.

As companies around the country debate returning to the office, 39% of Americans said that hybrid—a mix of in-person and remote work—was their ideal work schedule. Nearly 32% preferred a fully remote schedule, while 29% of Americans said their ideal work schedule was a full return to the office.

The same study also found that 43% of U.S. workers say they are burnt out at their job right now, with nearly half (47%) hesitant to discuss burnout with their boss.

“The question of whether employees should work fully in person, fully remote, or on a hybrid schedule has been a top issue facing organizations across America since the pandemic triggered a workplace revolution four years ago,” says Richard Wahlquist, chief executive officer at ASA. “While some predicted the end of in-person work, the survey found that half of U.S. employees currently work 100% in person. Employees’ attitudes are changing, with 68% of U.S. workers now stating that they prefer a hybrid or in-person schedule.”
