Hybrid Work Statistics (2022)

Hybrid work statistics

The way the world works has been on a seesaw since 2020.

My theory is simple: Every company had an office (and a lease). Then everyone started to work from home and preferred it. So now managers are just playing it up the middle. Hybrid work is, essentially, a bit of both. Nonetheless, the hybrid trend is strong right now.

In this database, we’ve compiled every meaningful statistic about the hybrid work model. You’ll find statistics about adoption, productivity, employee preferences, and more in the list below.
