The hybrid workplace is here to stay. Even post-pandemic, 77% of people surveyed claim that once the pandemic ends, having the flexibility to work from home would increase their level of happiness. Furthermore, according to OWL Labs, 23% of full-time employees are willing to accept a 10% cut in pay in exchange for the option to work remotely on some days.
