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.
