Work from Home: In the year 2020, the Corona epidemic created panic all over the world. Governments in many countries had to take tough decisions like lockdown to prevent corona virus infection. During this time, most of the companies allowed their employees to work from home. After the corona restrictions were relaxed, companies are now slowly ending this system but the employees are no longer ready to come to office. These employees who are doing work from home have even said that give less salary but do not call the office.
A survey was conducted in America regarding work from home, in which employees were asked for their opinion on this issue. In this, the employees working from home permanently have refused to come to the office and said that they are ready to take less salary for this.
American newspaper asked for opinion in the survey
The Washington Post and Ipsos surveyed 1,148 full-time and part-time workers between the ages of 18 and 64 to understand their attitudes towards work, including their opinion on remote work. According to the survey, 55 percent of 188 employees working from home said they would take a lower paying job to continue working from home.

At the same time, some employees are ready to compromise with the facilities. They want that instead of leaving work from home and coming to office, they get a better package. 45 percent of employees doing remote work are ready to go to office for a few days if they are offered a higher paying job.
Different opinion of employees of each age group
According to the poll, the attitude of employees of every age group is different regarding work from home. Of these, only 29 percent of workers between the ages of 18 and 26 say that working from home is not their top priority, as most work can only be done in the office. Overall, most of the employees, around 80 per cent, say that they would go to office 1-2 days a week if they get more money.
Companies like Amazon and Salesforce have issued orders for their employees to return to office. Because some executives believe that being in the office will increase productivity from individual work, increase creativity and improve team support. However, some employees have taken a tough stand regarding work from home. Tesla CEO Elon Musk said remote work is “morally wrong”.

In February, more than 2,000 Disney employees signed a petition opposing CEO Bob Iger returning to the office for 4 days a week.
Dozens of Starbucks corporate employees signed a similar petition. Some workers say that returning to office is affecting their bank balance. Because now they have to pay for clothes, office lunch and to and fro fare. One employee left his job worth lakhs of rupees to avoid going back to office.
