With the pandemic giving more workers a chance to experience remote working, 50% of Brits say that they want the hybrid working system to be a permanent feature.
Of the 2,000 Brits surveyed by office equipment experts Avansas, 54% of women wish to work at home a few days of the week compared to 44% of men.
Interestingly, those working at home are putting in more hours since Covid – 11% said they worked between 1-2 hours more and 12% 3-4 more hours a week.
Some Brits admit that they are fearful about returning to the office, with anxieties such as touching door handles and buttons and having multiple people in the same ‘confined’ space all day.
Despite this, 53% of those surveyed said that they feel the office is ‘somewhat safe’ and a quarter believe their workplace is completely safe.
