Majority of Taiwanese employers want employees in the office
The Covid pandemic may have made working from home a thing-- even in Taiwan. But a survey by 104 online job bank showed that more than 70% of companies still want all of their employees back in the office.
The survey found that 71% of enterprises preferred that all their employees be in the office, while 29% preferred a hybrid work schedule that combined on-site and remote models.
Only 0.3% backed only work-from-home arrangements.
The survey showed most employers who opted for the hybrid model wanted to see a schedule where employees spend three days a week in the office and two days at home.
By contrast, nearly 65% of the workers who took part in the survey indicated they would prefer the hybrid approach, 30% wanted to work in the office, and only 5% wanted to work exclusively from home.
But both employers and employees surveyed did agree, however, that work-from-home programmes did have three major advantages -- improving employee satisfaction, attracting crucial talent and saving on the cost of leasing office space.
