That means they can afford to be fully remote and might feel really comfortable doing things on their own," Barrero said. So that muscle memory might push them to come in more often than younger workers who embrace hybrid." Indeed, many older workers BI has spoken to are divided on whether they want to be in-office or at home — but they're willing to leave roles that don't cater to their preferences. Do you strongly prefer in-office or remote work?

Read previewAmericans are on their way to work — and they probably still have a long way to go. New research first reported by The Wall Street Journal shows that more workers are supercommuting, meaning they're traveling more than 75 miles each way for work. Some trips, they found, are as long as five hours each way, with some starting their commutes at 3 a.m. New York City experienced an 89% surge in supercommuting, from 1.9% to 3.6% of all trips. Phoenix, Arizona — a city that's seen a surge of new residents in recent years and, as a result, soaring housing costs — has also seen supercommuting increase by 57%.

Michael Bloomberg is an outspoken critic of remote work. He thinks employees are slacking off and hitting the golf course during the workday, he told CBS. A March study by Stanford University researchers found that remote work "powered a huge boom in golfing," with visits to golf courses surging on weekdays and mid-afternoons compared to pre-pandemic times. AdvertisementAdvertisementIn August, he wrote an opinion piece for The Washington Post, arguing that remote work for federal employees had "gone on too long." Just days after Bloomberg's article was published, Biden reportedly ramped up efforts to get federal employees back to the office.

Remote workers taking afternoons off are powering a boom in golfing and other leisure activities. Maganas, 60, is one of the many American remote workers powering an afternoon-leisure boom. That type of schedule, which Maganas has had for about 20 years, has become increasingly popular with the widespread adoption of remote work. Research from Nick Bloom, a Stanford University economist who's studied remote work for nearly 20 years, and his colleague Alex Finan tracks a rise in split schedules for those who are remote. For those considering a foray into the split schedule, Maganas recommends giving it a try and seeing whether it affects stress levels.
While remote workers are hitting the green on weekday afternoons, productivity isn't dropping. That's good news for leisure businesses and shows remote work has changed people's work structures. While some companies have called employees back to the office, Bloom doesn't think remote work is going anywhere. All those remote workers hitting the green doesn't necessarily mean people are working less. This will raise 'Golf productivity' — the number of golf courses played (and revenue raised) per course."
