Would You take Less Salary to Work from Home?

Apparently people really like working from home.  A recent poll says 73% of people surveyed say they would like the ability to continue to work from home after the pandemic.  It makes sense: less time commuting, less expense commuting, less childcare, etc. There a lot of advantages.  Another survey took it even farther, trying to quantify what the ability to remain working from home is worth.  An admittedly non-scientific poll found that given the choice between an employee staying in their current job that allows them to work remotely, versus taking a new job that requires them to be in the office but would pay $30k more, 64% said they would choose the remote option for less money.

One thought on “Would You take Less Salary to Work from Home?

  1. Absolutely not. That would imply either, the work one was doing was truly a lower quality as a result of working from home, or, that simply because working from home has quality of life benefits, an employee should be financially penalized for that. Hard no. I’d never accept a pay cut to work from home.
