ABSTRACT

Trade-Offs of Remote Work: Building a More Resilient Workplace for the Post-COVID-19 World   [open pdf - 6MB]

From the Executive Summary: "Before the pandemic, remote work in America was a luxury reserved for just 7 percent of the workforce, mostly highly educated and highly paid knowledge workers. Then, in a matter of weeks, COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] forced virtually every industry, employer, and worker to transform their approach to work by shifting to an almost entirely remote model. It will be years before we fully understand how this shift has affected the economy, individual industries, and employees. This report seeks to outline the positive and negative trade-offs of remote work for employers and employees. We hope to improve the collective understanding of the existing research on remote work and some of the immediate impacts of COVID-19 and point the way toward areas of needed research."
