Working From Home Remains Popular

With the push for remote working in 2020, which continued for much of 2021, both employees and
contact centre management have seen the benefits and challenges of remote working.

Our results show home working remains a popular choice, with 81.6% of contact centres continuing to allow employees to work from home at least some of the time.

58.1% of contact centres have people working from home for over 60% of the week, and 23.1% allow their home workers to work from home 100% of the time.

When compared to just 18.4% of contact centres who said they don’t have home workers, remote working may be here to stay.

This survey was done in partnership with NICE
