More US workers like working from home US employees who found themselves working from home amid the pandemic have apparently grown to prefer the shorter commute. According to a Wells Fargo/Gallup poll released Wednesday, 42% of nearly 1,100 workers surveyed last month said they generally enjoyed working from home, reports Bloomberg.
Only 14% didn't like it. Bloomberg reports nearly one-third of 1,200 workers surveyed back in June by PricewaterhouseCoopers who said, that if they had their druthers, they'd never see their office again. 72% said they'd prefer to work remotely at least two days each week.
