According to a study, only 0.2% of the IT sector is productive while working from home. This came as a surprise when almost all the companies are allowing their employees to work from home amid coronavirus. The rest of the workforce, 99.8% of the workforce in the Information Sector is not capable of working from home according to the study.
This 99.8% of the workforce does not have skills like learning and exploring, does not have practical communication skills and does not have planning and execution. The study also said 16.97% of the employees are challenge-driven and can work on any challenging task with minimal managing. 17% of the employees are instruction driven and need a definitive ask or direction to work on.
The study also said that 40.42% of the entire workforce in IT is logic-driven. These employees are experts at working from home and don’t need any micromanagement as long as they get clarified regarding the task at hand. Meanwhile, 12.7% of the IT workforce are social people and work from home is a challenge for them. This set of workforce doesn’t avoid the task but lack of social interaction is the one that bothers them. Hence a daily virtual meeting or something similar is necessary for them.
