Abstract
The world’s workforce, the way that businesses view remote work, and how employees view the value proposition of remote work have all been changed permanently due to the past year. The objective of this project was to gain insights into remote employment trends as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. To accomplish this goal, I surveyed the Iowa State University undergraduate student body in order to gain an understanding of people’s thoughts related to remote employment and their overall preferences after a year of firsthand experience. This survey included questions about current employment status, remote work experience, preferences in the workplace, and which benefits to both remote and in-person work are the most prioritized amongst this group of future professionals. Overall conclusions drawn from this survey include the undergraduate population at Iowa State preferring remote employment for the various benefits but in-person employment for the socialization aspect, the trend of industries adapting to more easily offer a variety of employment formats to improve their value proposition, and certain industries struggling to adapt to this format shift more than others.
