More Than Half of U.S. Adults Say Fully In-Office Workers Have Career Advantage Over Fully Remote Counterparts

Nearly six in 10 U.S. adults (56%) believe employees who work exclusively in-office have a competitive advantage over their fully remote counterparts when it comes to getting raises, bonuses, and promotions, according to the latest ASA Workforce Monitor® survey. However, despite this sentiment, less than half (48%) of workers report they are working completely in-person, 28% are working on a hybrid schedule, and 24% are fully remote.

“How, when, and where work will get done in the future is still an open question. Employers are trying to determine how hybrid and remote work affects productivity. And employees are trying to determine how the rise of hybrid and remote work is going to affect their careers, especially now that they’re contending with economic uncertainty,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “One thing that is certain is that hybrid and remote work are here to stay for significant numbers of employees whose work could be done from home. For those workers who have jobs that require in-person work, the challenge for all employers is to create and maintain employee-centric organizations that embrace workplace and work schedule flexibility; equal opportunity for advancement; and open dialogues with employees about their needs, desires, and concerns.”

The Workforce Monitor online survey conducted by The Harris Poll also found that that 51% of women employees said they work fully on-site, compared with 44% of men. Furthermore, employed parents of children under the age of 18 were more likely to work a hybrid schedule (33% vs. 24%), while the majority of those without minor children work on site full-time (51% vs. 43%).
