Source Title: Poll: 60% of Greeks hope to return to work after the epidemic
Beijing, January 24 (Xinhua) according to Greece’s “China Greece times”, Greek independent research institution pulse RC conducted a nationwide survey on the working mode during the epidemic period, in which 59% of the Greeks expressed a strong desire to return to the office.
According to reports, the survey was conducted in October 2020, and 2021 people from all over Greece were surveyed. The results show that although telecommuting has become a feasible alternative for public health reasons during the epidemic period, it can not really replace the offline workplace.
In addition to social needs, respondents generally believe that working in the office is more conducive to stimulating creativity and efficiency, so they hope to return to normal working conditions, the survey said. It is worth noting that this survey was carried out before the comprehensive blockade and home isolation, so it has not yet reflected the psychological fatigue of employees caused by long-term home stay.
PULSE RC official said that the survey was widely sampled, hoping to record one of the major changes brought by COVID-19 to the daily life of the people.
When answering the question “where will I choose to work after the epidemic”, 59% of the respondents said they would choose to return to the office. 70% of the respondents think that working in the office is more efficient, 79% think that the office environment is more conducive to the cooperation between colleagues, and 47% say that the mode of going out to work every day is actually more conducive to the harmony of family relations.
According to the person in charge of pulse RC, a key conclusion can be drawn from this survey, that is, although people temporarily adopt the home office mode based on the consideration of public health, the working environment of the office still has obvious advantages and strong attraction to employees.
