Close to half of employees in Romania would like to return full-time to offices, while more than one third would opt for the hybrid model that combines remote and in-office activities, according to a new survey by Genesis Property. 

To maintain a good balance between work and home life, 31.9% of the surveyed Romanian employees want to work only from the office after the pandemic and another 36.2% want to come to the company’s headquarters 3 to 4 days per week. Only 9.4% consider working from home 100% of the time to be more adequate for the future. 

The main survey finding is that 45% of employees expect a full return to office life and almost 35% favor the hybrid arrangement. 

“No matter how we will work after the pandemic, the office where we will spend at least a few days a week must be prepared to mitigate health risks. To feel safer in the office, employees want high-performance systems to improve the air and water quality in the building, sanitary materials to be distributed immediately when needed, sanitizing systems and well-established procedures in case of illness in the company,” says Darren Allen, Development Manager at Genesis Property, the company that created the IMMUNE Building Standard. 

The survey was conducted in February-March 2021 through the iVox platform, on a total sample of 1,183 internet users across the country. Almost 59% of the participants are women, approximately 60% are aged between 25 and 40, while 9 out of 10 are full-time employees.
