CraftJack, a home improvement marketing company, targeted 1520 American workers who worked fully remote or remote-centric between June 16-25, 2021 to investigate the reality of remote work. We conducted a survey. The male-female ratio of the respondents was 48% for females and 52% for males, and the average age was 37 years old.

The survey found that 90% of respondents were spending some money on remote work. Specifically, 57% of the respondents bought a chair and 51% had a new desk. In addition, 58% of the respondents answered that 'the employer paid for the expenses and provided equipment to improve the workspace at home.' The average amount of money spent on upgrading equipment used at work was $ 282 (about 30,000 yen).

Research has also shown that, unlike relatively affordable new equipment, little investment has been made in 'working rooms.' Of the respondents, 71% said they were using an improvised workspace. In addition, 32% of the respondents answered that they 'work in a decent home office', while 31% of the same number answered that they 'use their bedroom as an office'.

Not only the room where I work, but also the research results on the workspace were incredible. 68% of the respondents said they had worked on the sofa, as well as 'bed (65%)' 'outdoors (54%)' 'kitchen counter (51%)' 'closet room (35%)' ) ”Followed this. Furthermore, even if you change the question to 'the place where you always work' instead of 'the place where you have worked', 'sofa (45%)' 'bed (38%)' 'outdoor (20%)' ' The result was 'closet room (19%)'.

This work environment poses a variety of problems for remote workers. When asked about problems at work at home, 74% of respondents said they had pain or discomfort in their back, neck, shoulders, etc., and 66% said they had a desk or desk suitable for work. I want a chair, but it's too expensive to afford. '

In addition, 69% of people who work remotely in the same room as other people answered that they are suffering from the noise of the other person, and 58% of people who work remotely while living with their spouse or lover. 'This noise has made the relationship between the two worse,' he said.

Pets (43%) were the most frequently asked questions about entrants during video conferencing, followed by children (37%) and partners (34%).

Regarding the reality of remotework found in the survey, CraftJack said, 'While many workers who were previously detained in the office are starting to return to the office again, more workers are doing full or partial remotework. This hybrid of remote work and office is becoming the new standard, and workers will spend more time at home than before the pandemic. As a result, home offices are considered more seriously than ever before. Isn't it done? '
