Half of Finnish employees would consider leaving work without a remote work option: Survey

This opinion was most common among 18- to 29-year-olds, with 64% stating that the ability to work remotely was an important factor in their choice of job.

Despite the return to the office, the study found that telecommuting has had a positive impact on job satisfaction, productivity and work autonomy, with 60%, 54% and 50% of respondents reporting improvements in these areas, respectively. The study also found that hybrid work arrangements, where employees alternate between remote work and the office, have become the norm.

Mikael PentikäinenThe CEO of Suomen Yrittäjie said that allowing remote work can be a competitive advantage for employers. “Many young people value telecommuting and would consider changing jobs if it wasn’t possible,” he said. “If multi-location work brings added value to both the employer and the employees, it must be encouraged.”

The study also showed that telecommuting has reduced the number of sickness absences, with 52% of respondents reporting fewer sickness absences. However, more than half (54%) said that telecommuting has made it difficult to separate work and personal time.

The vast majority of employees (79%) said that their employer supports remote work, and if multi-location work became more common, the majority of people would choose to work from both home and the office.

The Työelämägallup survey was conducted by Suomen Yrittäjät, the benefit and service organization for small and medium-sized companies in Finland, Kantar Public Oy in January 2023, and 1,028 respondents participated in it. The poll’s margin of error is 3.1 percentage points at a 50 percent confidence level. Full results can be found here.
