More professionals are looking for jobs at companies offering permanent remote work, reveals a survey by BridgeLabz, a marketplace for deep tech talent.

About 91.47% of the participants said they are interested in joining the company offering remote work indefinitely, 48.81% of respondents prefer working remotely, and 27.78% prefer the hybrid model, says the Work Model Preferences survey, which saw participation from more than 1000 men and women, of which 49.60% are working remotely, from Tier 1, 2 & 3 cities of the country. 

Interestingly, 51.59% of the respondents believe that working remotely did not change their productivity levels. 31.13% of the participants used remote work to upskill to new courses and develop new skills, while 23.41% felt working remotely helped increase work efficiency. 

More than 70% of people think they found better job opportunities working remotely. 

“It is interesting that when companies are planning to open up offices to full strength, most professionals prefer or are looking for remote work. It indicates that the companies must consider the working model preference while formulating job offers. Given the competition in the market for talent, companies have an uphill battle at hand,” said BridgeLabz founder Narayan Mahadevan, talking about the survey findings.
