A recent study shows that the way employees look at work is quite different depending on whether they live in Paris or in the regions and even from one city to another.
Teleworking seems destined to take a permanent place in the lives of employees. But if the cause is heard on the figures across France, a recent study shows that local inequalities remain strong on the subject. The brand specializing in flexible offices in the regions, Newton Offices, therefore commissioned a study targeting employees living in the metropolitan areas of Paris, Lille, Lyon and Marseille to better understand how they experience changes in working methods. Result: significant differences appear from one city to another.
Overall, 50% of French people prefer to go to the office to work, 22% prefer teleworking and 28% say they appreciate work-study. In Lyon, 51% of employees show their attachment to face-to-face work. In Marseille, we are particularly attached to telework (37%) while Lille and Paris rely more than the others on work-study (32%). “In the perception of teleworking, the essential criterion remains the transport time, underlines Guillaume Pellegrin, founder of Newton Offices. Teleworking beyond 30 minutes is really appreciated. Or, traffic is very poor in Marseille and the city is twice the size of Paris. ”
1 to 3 days at home
While the majority of employees surveyed in these large cities (68%) now wish to telework at least 1 day a week, in Marseille, only 16% want to come back to the office every day (compared to 36% in the other cities) . Paradoxically, despite this strong attachment, the inhabitants of the Phocaean city like the Parisians see the right balance between 1 and 2 days at a distance whereas it is 2 to 3 days for the Lyonnais and Lille.
On the other hand, the quality elements that would make returning to the office easier or more enjoyable also vary somewhat. Where the Provincials above all expect to have good equipment at their disposal (screen, desk, etc.), Parisians are attached to high-tech equipment (29%) and to the brightness of the premises (21%). “There is obviously a difference in density and living space in offices, between Paris and the provinces, explains Guillaume Pellegrin. It is easier to find second-day offices in the capital. ”
