The massive HR firm ADP Canada has released a new report on the future of remote work, and it looks like things are shaking up a little bit. More Canadians, and particularly younger ones, are now saying that they would prefer the ability to work remotely. Here’s a little more info.
Some 45% of the respondents said that they preferred to work 3 days a week remotely. And for those aged 18-34, that percentage is hovering around 61%. This translates to more than a quarter of Canadians thinking that the workplace will offer more options in the next five years.
