What's it worth to work from home? For some, it's as much as one-third of their wage
Briefly

A significant proportion of Australian workers - about one-fifth - would be prepared to sacrifice between 16% and 33% of their salaries for the right to work from home, which works out at A$12,000 to $24,000 of those workers' salaries.
But a much larger proportion, more than one half, would be prepared to sacrifice nothing, being either not strongly convinced about the benefits of working from home or actively preferring to go into the workplace.
Before COVID, only 2% to 8% of the workforce in major Australian cities worked from home. During COVID, 21% worked from home on the day of the 2021 census. A Bureau of Statistics survey conducted in late 2020 found 31% worked from home most days.
Surprisingly, our findings are consistent with those of other surveys conducted both during and before the pandemic, suggesting the widespread move to working from home during COVID hasn't changed preferences.
