Heading Back to the Office?

A recent Jones Lang LaSalle report found that most private employers now operate under a hybrid policy of office attendance and remote work.

LYNCHBURG, Va. – Companies with fully remote work policies have become as rare as masking in the office, according to a recent report by Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. (JLL), a commercial real estate company.

While last year saw the establishment of in-office policies, this year marks the adoption of these rules, JLL said.

The report comes as a string of companies including IBM have cracked down on their workers to comply with in-office mandates.

Still, while new office attendance mandates continue to be rolled out, the pace is slowing significantly as the vast majority of private employers now require hybrid attendance, JLL said.

At the beginning of February, 91% of Fortune 100 employees were subject to either hybrid or fully in-office policies, while 1.4% work for fully remote employers. The remainder employs team-based or alternative approaches, the report said.

The average attendance mandate is now 3.1 days, according to JLL. And the supply of remote positions continues to decline.

The report noted that employers seem to be stabilizing their remote hiring at just under 9% of all roles, double pre-pandemic rates.
