This past year, our work ethic has been put to the test. When the pandemic started, roughly 20% of employed adults worked from home. During the pandemic, that number grew to 71%. This dramatic increase in the number of people working from home increased suddenly and without much warning. While there are advantages and disadvantages of working from home, this same study found that 54% of working adults would like to continue to work from home after the pandemic is over. That is more than half of the working population!
No matter where you stand on the spectrum of wanting to work from home, there are likely going to be times in the future when you are working from home. We’ve all figured out ways to cope during the pandemic and while some of us have figured out more permanent solutions to working from home, there are always ways in which we can improve our work ethic at home, stay focused, and get the job done.
