While a considerable number of employees across the globe are forced to work from home due to the corona crisis, it is crucial to know how the perception of telework changed. Therefore, using longitudinal data from 2018 and 2020, we examined employees' telework perceptions over time, taking into consideration the COVID-19 crisis. To this end, we conducted two web surveys among 87 employees, mainly from Germany, investigating their home-office perception in 2018 and 2020 facing challenges of the corona crisis. As a result, our respondents mostly attribute positive characteristics to teleworking over time, less salary discrimination, and attribute more positive character traits to home office workers. In contrast, the results also indicated the deterioration of personal perception of home-office work by participants compared to the survey results in 2018.
