More than just an employee survey
TINYpulse discovers how your employees are feeling, and performing
For all the apparent benefits of remote work for the employee experience, remote workers reported a lower level of satisfaction with their coworkers when compared to the benchmark of all employees, according to our research. This isn’t particularly surprising, given that these employees have limited interaction with their colleagues, with most, if not all, of that interaction happening virtually.
When you hear the phrase "remote worker," images of people binge-watching Netflix or putting off work may come to mind. But it's time to drop the stereotype. In our Remote Workers Report, we discovered that 91% of these folks claim they get more work done outside of the office. As it turns out, you don't need to force someone to come into a physical office daily to keep them engaged.
In an effort to reduce costs and enhance work-life balance, companies are increasingly deciding to become completely distributed, foregoing traditional office space in favor of remote teams. According to a recent study by Gallup, 37% of US workers are telecommuters, meaning they work remotely at least part of the time.

According to a survey by BusinessWire, 57% of employees plan to work during the holidays. And we know that sometimes working from home comes with many distractions (laundry, TV, pets, etc).
