A report from WFH Research suggests people who work on a hybrid schedule make more than those who work entirely remotely or in person.
Workers who take a hybrid schedule between work and home make an average of at least $80,000 per year, and the figure increases based on the number of days they work from home.
Those who work from home one out of the five work days make an average of $80,000 per year. Those who work from home two out of the five days make an average of $84,000 per year, and those who work from home three or four out of five days make an average of $88,000 per year.
Workers who attend in-person all five days of the work week make an average of $55,000 per year, while those who work all five days of the work week remotely make an average of $74,000 per year.
The report says the discrepancies between the average pay based on working arrangements can be traced to the type of work remote workers can do compared to jobs that have to be done in person.
Jobs in which people work fully in person tend to be service or specialty jobs, and remote work typically includes jobs that require a college education and are more about knowledge as opposed to physical labor.
