generation and the participants could be chosen among students studying towards a knowledge based job.
First, the author examined a sufficient amount of secondary data, since it could be used for choosing the most suitable methodology for the study. (Polonsky & Waller 2011, 95). It was discovered that there are numerous researches regarding remote work from the last decades. Although, the research results vary a lot due to the un- clear international definition of remote work, and therefore also depending of the re- gion's own approach to the phenomena.
Even though a great deal of secondary data research, hardly any studies regarding generational preferences of remote working were found. In addition, the author was specifically interested of the millennial generation. Most of the studies viewed re- garding remote work focused on either workers that are already working remotely, or on comparing the e.g. efficiency of remote workers compared to workers with regular office hours.
In this research, the author wanted to further determine the underlying attitudes and expectations of upcoming millennial workers towards remote working. Quantita- tive research approach would provide the information of, at what extent the stu- dents would be interested in working remotely, e.g. how many percentage of stu- dents preferred remote work as opposite to traditional office-based work. However, in this case as the author wanted to discover more in-depth, what are the percep- tions and attitudes towards remote work, the quantitative research approach does not suit the purpose.
As the students might not have prior knowledge of what is meant by remote work- ing, and therefore might not have a have a clear idea of the variables affecting their interest, they need to be studied by qualitative approach. This way the factors are provided by the participants themselves, as opposite to creating, for example, a sur- vey purely based on previous research of the topic, which might not be suitable for this group of participants. Moreover, the predetermined questions of surveys pre- vent the possibility to probe the respondent’s initial responses and that way to gain in-depth information and to discover the underlying reasons of the phenomena.
