A recent survey by Platform.sh reveals the lengths to which employees will go in order to fulfill the dream of working from home. 68 percent of workers said they would accept a 10 percent pay cut in return for being able to work from the comfort of their home. Almost half of all workers surveyed said they would take a pay cut and work more hours just for not having to show up to the office every day.
Half of workers were optimistic that they would actually work more hours while curled up on the couch. 65 percent were certain home office would make them like their job more. In terms of staying in touch while working from home, Microsoft Team was a much more common option than office chat pioneer Slack.
