Many Companies Embrace Remote Engineering Teams Post-Pandemic

Sept. 25, 2020
Report indicates that 66% of engineering leaders plan to continue allowing remote work after pandemic subsides.

The results of a survey from global talent network Andela reportedly indicate many organizations will embrace remote work for the long term. According to the survey data, 74% of engineering leaders say that their teams transitioned to fully remote as a result of Covid-19, and 66% indicate that they plan to continue allowing remote work after the pandemic subsides. An accelerated shift to permanent remote work allows engineering leaders to rethink their staffing strategies, tapping more global resources, which can increase productivity and cultural diversity, according to Andela.

“Covid-19 has dramatically accelerated the trend toward remote work. What’s interesting here is it looks like those gains are not going to be temporary,” says Andela CEO Jeremy Johnson. “This data shows that engineering leaders have realized that they can maintain productivity while simultaneously unlocking a global talent pool.”

Andela surveyed 100 CTOs and VPs of Engineering from a combination of high-growth startups (above 200 employees) and large enterprises. Major findings of Andela’s Remote Engineering Survey:

  • Prior to Covid, 13% of engineering teams were fully remote. As a result of the pandemic, that number has increased to 74%.
  • 66% of engineering teams believe they will continue to allow remote work after the threat of Covid-19 has subsided.
  • Only 22% of engineering leaders express a preference for engineers working in an office environment following the pandemic.
