More People Work From Home Permanently in UK

As many as a quarter of British employees could end up working from home for good, bosses anticipate, as companies plan for permanent changes after Covid-19.  One in four people to work from home permanently in UK.  “By and large, this massive forced experiment in home-working has been very successful. Sectors have been able to maintain quite a high degree of effectiveness operating from home.” said Ian Stewart, chief economist at Deloitte. 

A large-scale shift for Work from home

A large-scale shift could boost the workforce enormously. Opening up opportunities for those who have traditionally had fewer chances with a stricter five day pattern of office working, he said.  Such as parents, disabled workers and older staff. Such a move would bring benefits for those workers and the wider economy.

Business Saving

Using less office space could also produce significant savings for businesses. However, there are some downsides to working exclusively from home and shunning the office forever. It is more likely that offices could shift to a pattern where a large share of staff work two or three days a week on-site instead.

“Part of the success of the last nine months has been that it is based on networks and knowledge and relationships which were built up in more normal times. And we will have to focus on replenishing that,” said Mr Stewart. 

“This is certainly not the end of the offices – offices and places where people can work together are going to be very important. Overwhelmingly, people want a combination [of home and office working].” 

Bosses told a separate survey, by the Bank of England, that just over a third of their employees were continuing to work from home last month. 

The survey began in April, when 36.6pc worked from home. This fell to 28.9pc in September, after parts of the economy reopened, before rising again into the autumn and winter. 

Business model

At the same time the Office for National Statistics found 16pc of companies intend to use more home working as a permanent part of their business model, led by the IT and communications industry in which more than a third said remote working was here to stay. 

Meanwhile, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and KPMG reported a rise in hiring of permanent staff in December for the first time since September. 

Demand for workers is particularly high in IT and computing, nursing, medical and care roles, and accounting and financial jobs. 

Those seeking work in retail, hotel and catering businesses face a sustained slump in demand, however.
