A recent OwlLabs survey found that due to the pandemic, nearly seven employees out of ten in the United States are working remotely -- and many of them don't want to return to the office full-time.

According to collaborative video conferencing and classroom technology specialist OwlLabs, 69 percent of US full-time employees are currently working from home. A state of affairs that many people appreciate.

75 percent of respondents said they felt just as or more productive (8 percent said they felt much more productive). 23 percent of employees would be willing to take a pay cut of over 10 percent in order to be able to continue to work from home when the Covid-19 pandemic ends.

The other benefits of such setups for employees include 40 fewer minutes spent in commuting every day, and an average of $479.20 saved every month.

Remote working options have become so important to certain workers that 46 percent stated that they would be looking for a new job if they couldn't continue working from home at least a few days a week after the pandemic. This would have direct implications on many American lives. For instance, 29 percent of respondents would move to the suburbs while 12 percent would be ready to move even further away.

This survey was conducted on 2,025 full-time workers in the United States between the ages of 21 to 65 between June and July 2020.
