Over Half of People Want to Keep Working From Home Despite Feeling Less Connected to Coworkers

The transition to remote work has also affected certain populations differently: Younger workers reported feeling less motivated when working remotely compared to their older counterparts, while parents with children younger than 18 years reported having more disruptions throughout their day.

“In general, having children at home both stresses out the workers and their productivity. The quality of their work may decline because they’re trying to do too many things over too long a period of time,” said Carl E. Van Horn, director of the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University, in an October interview with Newsweek.
