IDC Survey: Finding the Next "Steady State" of Hybrid Work

This IDC Survey draws data from IDC's Future Enterprise Resiliency and Spending Survey, Wave 6, from July 2021. The data demonstrates clear differentiation between the work location preferences across each geography as well as strong common momentum toward a greater percentage of work in corporate facilities.

As ongoing global disruptions challenge organizations to consider a variety of hybrid work locations, this survey explores how companies across the United States, Asia/Pacific (AP), and EMEA have responded with supporting work across a variety of locations. Specifically, the survey compares work location preferences in the past, currently, and in a future "steady" state, which IDC defines as the point at which an organization has reached a relatively stable condition that does not change significantly over time.

"While there is no doubt that hybrid models will continue to evolve across the regions, it's clear that preferences for "in office" work are most dominant in AP and the United States comparatively," said Amy Loomis, research director, Future of Work at IDC." Currently, EMEA respondents are almost 10%+ likely to support primarily remote/at-home work locations than their U.S. counterparts and more than three times more likely than their peers in AP."
