HAPPY AT HOME

ONE-third of employees are now working from home — and 85 per cent of them want to keep it that way.

That is up from 27 per cent in the pre-Covid era of 2019.

But the analysis also suggested employers are more sceptical about the change.

Almost two-fifths expected most of their staff to return to the workplace within the next three months.

A better work-life balance was the main advantage individuals saw in homeworking, along with having fewer distractions and being able to complete work faster.

However, younger workers were less likely to feel these benefits and more likely to say they were struggling to think of new ideas, find job opportunities or collaborate with others.
