Some 65% of organizations have adopted a fully or hybrid-remote policy over the past year, but only 30% reimburse their employees’ remote-work related expenses, a report titled "The Remote Work Report" released by Israeli company Tikal, based on a survey of 600 tech professionals, has revealed. According to the report, it appears that people with no children or older children are more likely to look for a new job if they are forced to go back to the office. Unsurprisingly, family status is a significant factor in the decision whether or not to relocate or look for another job. People without kids are more likely to move closer to the workplace if they can’t work remotely, rather than look for a new job. People with older children are even less likely to relocate. Even more so, the older the kids are, the more likely these people are to look for a new job if their workplace will not allow working remotely. All in all, 46% across all verticals reported that they will keep their current jobs and resume commuting to their workplace.
