THE REMOTE WORK REPORT
How the Israeli tech industry adapted to working remotely in 2020.
65% of organizations have adopted a fully or hybrid-remote policy. However, only 30% reimburse their employees’ remote-work related expenses
Hybrid Remote is the New Normal
Most employees are experiencing remote work for the first time and enjoy the flexible schedule. They report that they are able accomplish their tasks and would recommend remote work as the future of working.
Remote Work is the Future
Just Like in the Office - In Remote
With the adoption of remote work, we expected more async workflows to be established, however, video calls remain a dominant communication method.
Only 25% reported that they use task-centered applications (such as Jira) while chats & emails remain the most used asynchronous communication platforms.
Over 80% would rather reach out to their colleagues than rely on documentation, which may imply there is a need for a better documentation culture in the workplace.
More Communication, Less Documentation
Challenges: Distractions, Burnout and Loneliness
Managing distractions is one of the greatest challenges people face regardless of their family composition. The majority reported that they experience loneliness and burnout; Those with 2 or 3 children reported an even stronger sense of loneliness than those with one child.
Office is an Option
People want the option to choose whether or not to return to the office.
The higher their seniority, the more likely they are to look for another job if this choice is taken away from them.
We also found a correlation between young age and willingness to consider relocating closer to work, for people that live far away.
