Oscar Fernández • 19/04/2023
At Cushman & Wakefield we have acquired the commitment to generate knowledge that accompanies you in making real estate decisions in times of transformation like the one we are experiencing.
We recently carried out a survey to find out with what strategy we are returning to the offices and here are the results:

1. Characteristics of Work From Home policies

Currently, in 84% of cases, the work from home policy implemented in companies is based on the combination of the remote work with physical presence in the office, that is, the hybrid model. Only 1% of the companies works remotely 100% of their time, while 15% work 100% in the office.

2. The currently Work From Home policy

The current  Work From Home policies are definitives for 68% of the companies, in 16% of the companies the current policies are provisional measures while in the remaining 16% they do not have a defined Work From Home policy.

3. How many days per week?

In most cases, the number of days required to attend the office is 3 days per week and 2 working remotely (30%), followed by 2 days per week at the office and 3 working remotely (22, 3%), while the option of 1 day of working remotely is selected by 14.1% of the participants.

4. By sectors?

In most sectors (Public Administration, Pharmaceutical, Financial Services, Insurance and Health) the majority number of maximum working remotely days is 2 days a week. The sector that works remotely the most is Technology & Telecommunications and those that work remotely the least are Industrial, Professional Services, Legal, and Banking.

5. Degree of satisfaction with the teleworking policy

For 57% of the participants, the Work From Home policy implemented in their companies is aligned with their preference, while for 19% Work From Home policy does not meet the expectations of the employees and finally, for the remaining 25% believe that with some adjustments, it would get more acceptance.

6. Reasons to stay at home

The three most selected reasons to work from home by the participants are:
Greater balance with personal and professional life (35.7%), savings in travel time (33.8%) and at home they feel more productive and are better organized (22.3%).
