More Workers Now Prefer Hybrid Over Remote

The latest report from Morning Consult, conducted in January, reveals a notable shift in employee work preferences. Hybrid work has now surpassed remote work as the favored option, marking the first time this has happened since 2022.

- As per the report, 30% of Americans expressed their intention to seek hybrid work opportunities in the future.

#### Engagement and Motivation

- Despite an overall decline in employee engagement, the report highlights an increase in engagement among hybrid workers from 2023 to 2024.

- Factors such as a flexible dress code, child care benefits, and coverage of commuting costs were identified as significant motivators for employees who primarily work remotely, prompting them to consider returning to the office.

#### Uncertainties and Unchanged Sentiments

- The report underlines the ambiguity regarding the impact of AI in the workplace, with mixed opinions among Americans on whether it would have a positive or negative influence.

- Approximately 44% of employed respondents reported using AI for work, with a higher usage rate observed among Millennials and those holding post-graduate degrees. 

- While certain preferences have become clear, others remain uncertain. Notably, workers' sentiments on various aspects have remained unchanged from the previous year, with little variation in the desire to leave positions. Gen-Z workers display a higher tendency towards quitting, yet overall job satisfaction persists, although dissatisfaction with pay continues to be a prevalent concern.
