Remote Work StudyWorking From Home In Grand Erie
Remote work is more common than ever before
About 17% of workers in Grand Erie work from home, according to the 2021 Census. That’s up considerably from the 10% recorded in 2016.
To better understand this change, the Workforce Planning Board conducted a study in 2022, surveying about 260 residents of Brantford, Six Nations, Mississaugas of the Credit, Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk.
The objectives were to understand how workers perceived teleworking and to identify the supports they needed from their employers, government and community to navigate the changes accompanied by this growing trend.
The survey found that remote work is of growing interest to employees. And those working remotely reported increased quality of work-life balance, including greater job flexibility and better access to skills training and mentorship opportunities.
But many remote workers indicated experiencing higher levels of burnout, suggesting a need for more management/leadership training and stricter regulations around working hours.
