Furthermore, more than two-fifths of employers offered their employees the option of working from home, with around 14% of the workforce taking advantage of this opportunity on a typical working day. The information, media, and telecommunications industry is at the forefront of remote work adoption, with 30% of its workforce working from home every day.

The poll also found industry variations. Professional services, information media, finance, and part-time work were among the industries with the highest incidence of flexible work and support arrangements. In contrast, China Daily reported that industries like as hotel, agriculture, and repair services were less likely to provide work-from-home opportunities.

According to Ricky Ho, Business Performance Manager for Stats NZ, “Larger organisations were more likely to offer health and wellbeing support, and to go above and beyond what is required by law for parental leave, redundancy, and illness or injury provisions.”
