Data from Engaging Business reveals that 60% of the UK’s at home workforce want to remain working from home, despite many businesses getting set to return to the office part time, starting from next week.
The Working from Home Survey by Engaging Business, which has been taken by over 6,000 employees since the lockdown began, shows that 60% would prefer a split; working a couple of days a week from home yet still commuting to the office.
The survey also provides an employee’s Working From Home Happiness Score, with the average score revealed to be 73%, higher than the average Workplace Happiness Score which averages at 65% in the UK. When it comes to gender, men and women rank their happiness at working from home the same.
