The pandemic changed the way many Americans work. A May 2021 Gallup poll found that 72 percent of white-collar workers are still working from home even as vaccination rates rise and COVID-19 cases fall. And an April 2021 survey of 25,000 U.S. workers by IBM found that 54 percent of respondents would prefer to continue to work remotely primarily.
Some major companies, including Google, Microsoft, American Express, Uber, and Airbnb, have extended their remote work policies. Some have announced that they will allow remote work indefinitely.
Whether you’re continuing to work from home or beginning a new hybrid plan of home and office, all this news may mean your home office needs a bit of a makeover. Perhaps you threw together an office space in the early days of the shutdowns, not realizing how much time you would be spending there.
