Today we launch our next wave of research, which explores how perceptions of remote work have changed throughout the lockdown – which was covered in The Times newspaper this morning.

The research follows on from our early-lockdown study, which saw over 3,000 respondents of UK workers, which found that 55% of workers were able to work from home during lockdown.

This time, we focused entirely workers that did work from home during lockdown and explored commute times, long-term preferences to working locations and more.

With a random sample of over 2,500 respondents, our research is presented with a 95% confidence level and a margin of sampling error of +/- 2 percentage points.

Findings show that businesses are gaining the equivalent of an extra 21 working days a year from employees putting in longer shifts when they work from home. However, employees also get more time on top of that back themselves, due to the time saved from not having to commute.

Our study also found that around 12% of workers have now returned to the office full time and almost one third have returned to work in a hybrid capacity. Interestingly, around 9 in 10 people (87%) now want to work from home at least 1 day a week for the long term – pandemic or not.
