London Workers Are Concerned About Post-pandemic Work

A new report from Future Strategy Club has found that Brits are worried that finding the right job after the pandemic will be increasingly difficult.

The data revealed that 54% of Londoners are concerned about the future of their career prospects. An additional 33% stated that, while they plan to come into the office as soon as it’s safe, they wonder whether their career progression will still be halted.

“Office workers are concerned that the dispersion of talent will lead to reduced networking opportunities and job openings. This is set to give rise to a new way of working; creating a nomad generation as businesses aren’t tied to desks and location,” the report stated.

Even more, 60% of Brits say they believe the workplace will need to learn how to adapt to the new norms of the workplace, or they will leave behind their traditional work life for freelancing positions.

Additionally, many Londoners noted that they moved back to their family home during the lockdown, which could indicate more will do so if remote working becomes readily adopted.

In the meantime, a survey by recruitment firm ManpowerGroup found that Britain was one of a few European states where employers will cut down on workers during the first quarter of this year, rather than gain new hires. This indicates that it would be a while before the UK’s employment rate recovers.
