Back in March, a huge portion of the workforce suddenly began working from home. In October, we surveyed 7,478 respondents across the US, Mexico, France, Germany, Spain, the UK, Australia, and Singapore using Brandwatch Qriously. 46% of them reported that they work or study at home all the time or sometimes.
Of those respondents working from home, only 46% of them said that they have everything they need to work comfortably and effectively.
That leaves 54% selecting either ‘Somewhat’ or ‘No’ when asked if they have what they need. That’s a large chunk of the work-from-home workforce ill-equipped to thrive during their working hours.
Suitable computers or laptops, a reliable internet connection, and comfortable chairs were common items people were missing among those who don’t or only somewhat have what they need.
