Remote working has been around for many years. There are a handful of businesses that had employees working remotely before the pandemic ever began. Until this last year and a half, it was not an extremely popular concept to businesses. Now, a large number of companies have figured out their way around how to run their company remotely.
Do Graduating Students Want To Work In-Person?
The class of 2021, both high school and college, is getting ready to enter the working world. Are they choosing companies that work remotely, or do they want the face-to-face interactions of a business? The decision is wavering, but 98% of people who took a survey say they wouldn’t mind working in a hybrid situation.
A very low percentage of students said they would like to work in a remote situation one hundred percent of the time. Working from home, where you do not interact with other employees, can be lonely. Especially those without a family at home or kids to take care of. It may sound great in the beginning, but it gets old after a while.
Is Zoom Enough?
Many businesses found their way through different platforms to stay connected. Communication is an important part of running a business. Zoom, Skype, and Facetime were commonly used to hold business meetings, classes, and instructions for different assignments.
Is zoom good enough to take the place of face-to-face interactions in the workplace? Yes, it worked during the social distancing period, but will it work long-term for people? The ones who are ready to jump into the business world. Many people reported being fatigued and tired of computer screen interactions.
Soon To Be Graduating College Students
The students who are preparing to enter to job force are most all hopeful to enter in person. Whereas before, working from home would be a highlight to people. The statistics have flopped, and people are more motivated by the ones who are working in person.
Businesses have seen a fluctuation of motivation to enter the workforce in the graduates of 2021, as opposed to 2020. The salaries are increasing for these individuals as well, 22% over the last year. The average yearly income is $66,600. A big concern of these people is how the company they are looking at working in handles diversity, equity, and inclusion.
