The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a historic shift in the way many people work from home. But now that the majority of eligible Americans are at least partially vaccinated, many companies are planning how to safely get their employees back to the office and whether they want to continue to allow remote working. Data gathered over the past year shows that workers are just as productive at home – if not more – and tend to work longer hours. Interestingly, this phenomenon is not just limited to the pandemic; The Census Bureau data shows that full-time remote workers averaged almost two additional hours per week in 2019 than non-remote workers. The latest data from the Census Bureau shows that part-time remote workers worked less, averaging 19.3 hours per week compared to 21.5 hours per week than their undeployed counterparts. However, full-time teleworkers worked an average of 45.6 hours per week, compared with an average of 43.8 hours for non-location full-time workers. Overall, teleworkers were less likely to work full-time in 2019, with around two-thirds of teleworkers being full-time, compared to 73% of non-remote workers.
