91% Report Working Remotely During COVID-19 Pandemic

MINNEAPOLIS, October 8, 2020 – Perforce Software, a provider of solutions to enterprise teams requiring productivity, visibility, and scale along the development lifecycle, today announced the findings of their COVID-19 Developer Impact Survey.

The survey, conducted by JRebel by Perforce, measured the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on development teams, including productivity, hours worked, and changes to staffing.

The survey found 91% of developers working remotely, and 58% reporting an increase in hours worked per week.

Companies were also affected, with 55% reporting a decrease in hiring during the COVID-19 pandemic, and nearly 33% reporting a decrease in staffed contractors.

“Understanding how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting development teams is critical,” said Rod Cope, CTO of Perforce Software. “This report shows the tangible impact it’s having on developers and companies alike.”

The report also provides projections for what the new normal may look like for development teams in a post-COVID world.

“COVID-19 won’t be our last pandemic,” Rod continued, “so learning the right lessons will be crucial to continued development success.”
