Study by Zoom says 69% of Emiratis expect to work from home in the future

The vast majority of Emiratis want continued access to video communication apps post-Covid, a survey by Zoom has found.

According to the survey by the video communication platform, 83 per cent of Emirati respondents said that it is important for them to have continued access. The UAE government allowed Zoom and other free video calling apps when Covid-19 struck to enable work-from-home and online education.

The study was carried out to determine the number of Emiratis who use video communication applications, how important those tools are to them and how they expect to use them in the future.

The survey revealed that 66 per cent of Emiratis believe that the continued use of video communication would help boost the economy and innovation.

A third (31 per cent) of respondents expect to work from home full time, whereas 38 per cent expect to work both from home and office, and 27 per cent expect to work full time from their office. This finding highlights that a total of 69 per cent of Emiratis expect to work from home in the future, which is important to consider as they would need video communication applications in the future.

The survey also showed that 76 per cent of respondents chose Zoom as one of their top three preferred applications.

“The pandemic has introduced rapid and dramatic shifts in how people work; also changing habits and opening new opportunities for the work environment,” said Derek Pando, head of International and Partner Marketing at Zoom.
