More People Prefer Work from Home

Parent Interventions

A UK-wide study done by University of Cardiff has shown that 88% employees who worked at home in June 2020 reported they would like to continue the practice. In September, the figure rose to 93%. Forty one percent of home workers reported in June 2020 that they were able to get as much work done as they had six months earlier and more than quarter (29%) said they got more done. The September data suggest that 85% of employees who continued to work at home were just as productive, if not more, than they were before the pandemic. The equivalent figure in June was 70%. Nearly half (46%) of full-time home workers put the increase in their productivity down to fewer interruptions, and 28% put it down to not having to commute to and from work. Reconciling home and work life was difficult for many and they worked longer hours at home frequently feeling drained and isolated.
