October 27, 2021

It was already clear that most workers would like to keep on telecommuting, even once all the conditions are in place for a return to the office. Here’s a new factoid that employers may want to keep in mind over the coming weeks: according to a survey by the U.S. company GoodHire, a majority of workers might even be willing to accept lower pay to continue working from home.

In a study released earlier this fall, GoodHire discovered that 61% of the workers surveyed would agree to a drop in pay to maintain their remote working status. Some respondents even claimed that they would take a pay cut of 50%. The most common response, however, was 10%.
