MarkCom, an association representing 23 communications, marketing and advertising agencies, conducted a study on employee remote work. It turned out that remote work is not a ubiquitous trend in this area.
Of the 16 agencies surveyed by MarkCom, half are ready to give employees 1 day of remote work a week without conditions, while the other half believe that it is necessary to take into account the workload, duties and features of the employee's work.
34 days of remote work a year seem like a pretty good alternative. However, 56% of all agencies consider telecommuting less productive than tet-a-tet meetings. 38% do not see any difference in work. And only one agency (6%) sees an undeniable benefit from such a regime.
As for the most important question: which day of the week do employees prefer as their remote work day of the week? It was mistakenly believed that it would be Friday or Monday. However, the survey showed that days from Tuesday to Thursday were most often chosen.
