Recent Research Reveals Some Surprising WFH Productivity Trends
There's been a significant shift in the work landscape over the past few years. While working from home (WFH) became the necessary norm during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the trend has continued long after for many. But is this model as efficient as working from an office?
In a recent article by Ryan Hogg, new research emerged suggesting that full-time remote workers might be lagging behind their in-office counterparts in terms of productivity. According to a study conducted by the National Bureau of Economic Research, workers randomly assigned to work from home had an 18% lower "net speed" or the number of correct data entries per minute, compared to those working in an office. Notably, the research highlighted that two-thirds of this productivity drop was observed from day one.
Such statistics might raise eyebrows, especially for employers and professionals aiming to optimize their output. High earners, in particular, have continued the WFH trend even post-pandemic. However, the growing research, combined with companies like JPMorgan pushing for a return to the office, suggests that the traditional workspace might still have its merits.
