The Productivity Results are In! Working from home or in the office?

Macquarie University reports that research conducted early in the pandemic which indicated an increase in productivity has now been overridden by new research. It appears that a number of elements have influenced productivity levels including choice (self-selection) versus force, experience levels, or onboarding whilst working from home or the office.

Those who began their job working from home had the worst productivity of the categories that were studied. The forced working from home group was least productive over those who self selected to work from home.

A key finding was that working parents who self-selected to work from home were found to work on average an extra 1.8 hours a day longer than their office colleagues.
