Missing the office?

  • Covid-19 has meant many people have had to work from home. Only 19% of office workers want to spend the majority of their time working from home and normally only 1.7 million people do.
 
  • Survey results revealed the top 10 things people miss most about the office. Office jokes (41%) and colleagues (40%) are two of the things workers miss the most.
 
  • However, there are some perks of working from home, 51% found the time they saved not commuting is the most valuable thing to come out of it. With average commute times of 59 minutes it's not surprising.
 
  • It will take many months and some people will permanently prefer working from home, but for many, a day in the office has been a lost pleasure.
