In recognition of the months spent working at kitchen tables, on couches and in bedrooms, a new “Work from Here” trend is growing where remote employees take it upon themselves to “upgrade” their office view.
In fact, Expedia recently surveyed 1,000 U.S. employees to uncover the desires and perceived benefits of working from a new location.
Some of their most interesting findings include:
- Work-dreams are the new daydreams: Three in four people wish they could work from a new location to get a more exotic “office view,” and more than half (56%) want the trip to be for two weeks.
- “Work from Here” endorphins: Queue the smiles and exhales – U.S. remote workers say that a WFH trip will have real emotional benefits. The top three include: Feeling happy, excited and relaxed.
- Being in paradise improves productivity: Two-thirds of people believe working from a vacation spot would benefit their work output.
- Tighter family ties: Two in three people expect their relationship with their both partner and kids would improve if they could work from a new location.
