Home office or working at the office – what ist he preference of the Europeans?

In times where everything is shifting, in which things, thought natural in the past, are questioned and in which things, taken for impossible in the past, are getting possible, it is no wonder that also the working world is changing a lot. Thanks to the internet and the mobility coming with it, a new trend named “digital nomads” has evolved within the last years. The concept of digital nomads is that you can work from everywhere in the world, as long as you have a proper internet connection to do your work. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you inevitably have to relocate to another continent to work free and independently thanks to the internet, which is why we asked our users whether they prefer to work from home or at the office. One thing can be said in advance: Our users have never before agreed that much!

The diagram is not hard to interpret; you can see at first glance that our JOBswype users in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Rumania agree in one opinion: they prefer working from home! With a span from 67% (Slovakia) to 86% (Rumania) our users give priority to the flexibility and independency allowed by a home office compared to the personal contact to the colleagues and the chef. Only 12% (Hungary) to 41% (Poland) prefer working at the office.

It is elf-explanatory that both variants have their advantages and disadvantages, nevertheless these clear results represent an unmistakable direction the working world could develop towards.

1015 users participated in this survey carried out in June 2016.
