Nearly Half of Americans Prefer Remote Work
As states lift pre-pandemic restrictions, employees say they would prefer to continue working from home. How can organizations be sure their hybrid work policies are safe and effective?
A February report from U.S. News & World Report indicates nearly half—44%—of American workers said they would prefer to work from home when states begin to lift restrictions. Study after study shows U.S. employees prefer to either completely telework or work from home at least part of the time. For a profession that continues facing talent shortages, that means business and firm owners and managers must create remote or hybrid work opportunities to recruit and retain talent.
How can employers be sure their policies and procedures are both safe and effective for their companies, employees, and clients? The Center for Accounting Transformation is undertaking a research project to answer questions related to hybrid work policy and cybersecurity best practices. The research study is co-designed by Ann-Marie Blake, Chart.PR, Matt Pickard, Ph.D., and Donny Shimamoto, CPA, CITP, CGMA, to ensure analyses are academically rigorous and provide insights that are actionable and can be realistically implemented by practitioners.
The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Participants will receive personalized reports to allow them to benchmark themselves against peers (size or geography) and identify how their policies and controls may differ from leading practices. Additionally, respondents will be entered to win a $100 gift card.
The Center for Accounting Transformation provides professionals with a framework for utilizing innovations that are ready for adoption, the training and resources necessary to apply the innovations, and an opportunity to engage the talent and community needed to further the pursuit of innovative accounting practices that drive responsible and mindful business performance.
