There’s been a struggle to find peaceful coexistence between remote workers and those that come to the office, according to a recent report from JLL’s Workforce Preferences Barometer. Opinions and tolerances for either behavior generally cut between generational lines, as well as those based on job titles.

“Opinions over the future of remote work are clearly divided between senior cohorts and their colleagues, a sign of how the complexities of the hybrid conversation continue to cause issues for those managing workforces and real estate,” according to the report, which said that working somewhere other than the office has become the norm for over half of corporate employees.

The report found that non-managers and baby boomers have a weaker appetite than Gen Y and Z for hybrid work. In fact, 37% of people over 50 years old are likely to be found in the office five days a week, as opposed to just 20% of under 35s.
