- The study showed a demand for more flexible working, up from a tenth in 2019
- The survey found 32% of people expecting to at least partially work from home
- It comes as Boris Johnson on Friday urged Brits back to deserted High Streets
One in three office workers want to continue working from home after the coronavirus threat is over, a survey has revealed.
The study from the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) found that 32 per cent of people are expecting to at least partially work from home even after the lockdown has ended.
The survey also showed a strong demand from Brits for more flexible working, up from a tenth in 2019, as reported by The Telegraph.
Pablo Shah, a senior economist at the CEBR, told the newspaper: ‘This seismic shift, taking place in months rather than decades, will transform the worlds of property, transport, retail, leisure and, not least, fashion. Ten years ago, this would not have been possible.’
The research further indicated that between 25 per cent and 30 per cent of employees will be working from home on any one day in 2021.
It comes as Boris Johnson altered guidance on Friday for home workers in an effort to get them back to offices and save Britain’s High Streets which continue to be deserted despite the easing of lockdown restrictions.
