    A recent survey has found that 70.0 percent of respondents are in favor of telecommuting even after the coronavirus is contained, with many happy with the reduction in commuting.

    Those in favor comprise 24.8 percent who fully think telecommuting should be promoted after the pandemic and 45.2 percent who somewhat think so.

    Asked to describe good things about remote work, with multiple answers allowed, 68.2 percent said they have no stress from commuting and 50.6 percent said they can live in and work from places with cheaper housing costs.

    Being able to work even when caring for family members or others was mentioned by 47.7 percent, followed by less time spent on unproductive overtime by 42.4 percent, and better working environments for people with physical disabilities by 41.6 percent.
