The number of people commuting to and from work daily is still down an average of 20 percent compared to pre-pandemic levels, according to a new study.

The study was conducted by a multinational team of researchers, with team members coming from the US, Mexico and the UK, called Work from Home Research.

The Daily Mail reported that the same study found that many Americans would be willing to quit their job and find a new one, rather than have to go back to commuting five or more days per week.

The outlet added that the "results reported by the researchers also found that the average American employee is now working 1.5 days per week from home," even as COVID cases continue to plunge worldwide.

"Americans seem to have dug in on what researchers describe as 'work from home culture' as well, with 15 percent saying they would likely look for a new job if they were told they had to return to the office five days a week."

The study was conducted in various nations across the world, and a total of some 33,000 people were surveyed in the process.

Among employers, the idea of their whole workforce always working from home is not always considered to be an acceptable solution in the long-term.

The notable exception has been companies in the tech industry. Twitter, for example, over two years ago publicly stated that many of their employees will never be required to show up at the office again.
