Mark Haranas

Are tech workers willing to take a pay cut to work from home remotely? How many have already relocated? Will WFH improve diversity in the IT industry? A new report from Indeed surveying more than 600 IT professional sheds a light on these questions and many more.

Most WFH Employees Plan To Stay Remote

The COVID-19 pandemic is transforming not only how technology employees work, but also their IT career paths.

Forty-eight percent of all tech workers surveyed by Indeed now have the option to work from home permanently, even though they weren’t doing so prior to COVID-19. Furthermore, a whopping 95 percent said they plan to take their employers up on the offer.

Now with the experience of working full-time remotely, 55 percent of tech workers said if they do change jobs, they’ll look for one with flexible or hybrid work options. More than one-third say they want a job that is permanently remote. Only a tiny percentage of IT professionals, 7 percent, want a job that requires them to be in the office full-time.
