Compared to other generations, Gen Z is the most thankful for extra time with family, citing this as the greatest benefit of working from home. Appreciation for time spent with family decreases among older Americans, with a nearly 50% drop from Gen Z to baby boomers.
Baby boomers and Gen Xers are most appreciative of the flexibility that comes along with working from home. Only 10% of Gen Zers and 12% of millennials cite more flexibility as the greatest benefit – perhaps because this age group is already more accustomed to flexible work hours. Added productivity and less office politics rank lowest among benefits across all generations.
