According to a newly published survey by YouGov and Mint, Indian millennials are almost split on whether they enjoyed working from home due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Out of almost 6,000 urban respondents, 55 percent judged the time spent working at home negatively, while 45 percent did not want to distinguish between their residence and their office anymore.
When the survey was carried out in October and November, 55 percent of respondents reported working from home entirely, while 20 percent worked from the office and another 25 percent were on a rotating system, taking turns with colleagues.
The negative aspect of WFH that most respondents were agreeing on was increased office workloads, with 81 percent saying they felt them. In fact, working more because WFH makes it harder to distinguish between leisure and working hours has been a common complaint during the coronavirus pandemic. Fewer than half of respondents – 48 percent - felt disturbed by family members being present, making it one of the least common complaints about work from home in the survey.
