What The Data Says About Working From Home
According to statistics courtesy of ONS, 35.9% of workers did some work at home in 2020, an increase of 9.4 percentage points when compared with 2019. It’s clear that the Covid-19 Pandemic has contributed heavily to this data, but there is some information that suggest high percentages of home working maybe permanent moving forward. This is likely due to data from 71% of employers that indicated working from home may have boosted staff productivity or made little difference. Working from home does have many beneficial aspects for employees. Although the social aspect of the office environment may be affected, working from home means shorter days, less risk of spreading illnesses, reduced costs on resources and travel and much more!
