If you’ve been working from home during the pandemic and have been worried about your job performance, you’re not alone.

A new survey by Angus Reid on behalf of technology company Cisco suggests nearly half of Canadian workers think in-person workers could have more career growth opportunities than someone who works remotely.

However, 77 per cent believe flexibility is a key factor that’ll be part of their decision to stay with or leave a company.

The company says the results show how important it is for employers to create a workplace culture that supports both remote and in-person workers equally and start to think about what workspaces will look like in the future.

“No matter where employees work – from their home, office or a coffee shop – organizations need to prioritize employee needs and expectations to retain their talent,” Cisco Canada president Shannon Leininger said.

Leininger said teams need to get together to define what hybrid work actually means in their office, since work models will vary from workplace to workplace.

Cisco said results from the Canadian survey align with the company’s Hybrid Work Index, which measures how work habits have been shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic. Among its findings is that personal health and wellness, as well as flexible work arrangements, are keys to the future of hybrid work.
