Dell Technologies recently released new research revealing the readiness of Indian employees for long-term remote work.

The firm surveyed over 7,000 working professionals aged 18 years and above from the Asia Pacific and Japan region (of which 1,027 were from India) for its Remote Work Readiness Index survey which assessed data on employees' readiness for long-term remote work and their views on the factors important for its success.

In the inaugural Remote Work Readiness Index, Dell discovered more than nine in 10 (91 per cent) employees in India (81 per cent in Asia Pacific and Japan) were prepared for long-term remote work, but faced ongoing productivity challenges.

At the same time, most employees also shared concerns about not having access to the right technologies and the blurring of boundaries between work and personal lives in a long-term remote work arrangement.

Some interesting findings from the report:
