Remote work hits post-pandemic low

Remote work is at its lowest point since the start of the pandemic, according to data from the two most recent Census Bureau Household Pulse surveys. 

Less than 26% of U.S. households still have someone working remotely at least one day per week, down from 37% in 2021. 

This is largely due to bosses' push for a return to office, Bloomberg reported Oct. 16. CEOs are calling workers back on-site, aiming to regain the collaboration and engagement some feel was lost during COVID-19. 

The initiative has received some pushback from employees, who enjoy the flexibility of working from home. But in today's tight job market, they don't have much say, as the increasing rarity of remote work reflects.
