85% of office workers are looking forward to returning to the office.
The survey reveals more than half (52%) of office workers report socializing with colleagues as their top reason for wanting to return to the office. Other missed benefits by employees included having access to proper work equipment (44%) and getting out of the home (44%).
The results also indicate different perspectives by age and ethnicity. While 89% of millennials wish to return to the office, only 80% of baby boomers felt the same. Also, while 90% of non-white people expressed that they were looking forward to returning to the office, the results for white people were slightly lower at 84%.
Employees don’t expect a major shift in how they will dress for work with more than half (53%) expecting to return to their pre-COVID, in-office dress style.
