    Regular teleworking “is already well established in the organization of managers’ work,” according to an Apec study published on Tuesday, which shows that almost one in two managers (45%) would resign if access to teleworking were eliminated.

    The survey by the Association for the Employment of Managers indicates that “for managers there is no turning back” and highlights that 69% would be dissatisfied if teleworking were reduced (82% if it were eliminated).

    It’s no longer an option

    Two-thirds of the executives surveyed telework at least one day a week, of which a quarter more than two days a week, proof of the considerable growth of teleworking in this professional category in recent years and the Covid-19 pandemic. 19.

    One in two managers (51%) even considers that the use of teleworking is no longer an option but rather an acquired fact, having become prohibitive to join a company without access to teleworking.

    This practice allows seven out of ten executives to organize their tasks according to the workplace, favoring in-person work for collective tasks (61%) and opting more for working from home for individual tasks (51%).

    Teleworking, essential but with some disadvantages

    Executives, however, identify certain points of vigilance to optimize the practice of hybrid work: they point out in particular a lower integration of new employees into the team (48%), a confusion of the boundaries between personal and professional life (40 %) or even the fear of missing important communications (39%).

    These limits of teleworking are especially felt by younger executives, especially concerned about integration and professional development issues, according to the study.

    However, the desire to perpetuate the practice of teleworking is not in doubt and seven out of ten executives believe that teleworking has more advantages than disadvantages.

    The study is based on online surveys conducted with a sample of 1,000 executives in November 2023 and January 2024 and with 2,000 executives in December 2023.
