This Real Research Media Report is a compilation of interesting findings gathered from thousands of honest, reliable, and organic respondents. In particular, this report focuses on how almost everyone experienced remote working and the new work schedule of flexible workweeks and working hours. The Coronavirus outbreak heralded a new era of flexible work arrangements for millions of people, ushering in a considerable shift in how a significant portion of the workforce operates.

Before the coronavirus outbreak, remote work was never a realistic choice for most working professionals. Working from home used to be limited to a few jobs and it was more common among the self-employed. However, since the pandemic started, remote working has been applied to the majority, regardless of which industry they fall into or the kind of occupation they have. But still, for sure, not everyone has the option of working from home, despite the crisis.

Employees want flexibility not only in terms of where they work but also in terms of how they work. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many workers experienced their first taste of flexible working. The term “flexible working hours” refers to a schedule that allows employees to begin and end their workday whenever they want. In contrast to the traditional working hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., employees have the option to work at any time of day. In a broader sense, several countries have experimented with the 4-day workweek. In particular, the United Arab Emirates public sector began implementing the 4.5-day workweek in 2022.
