A poll from the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has revealed that nearly half of London companies expect employees who are able to work from home to do so up to five days a week in the future.
“Many businesses have already made decisions regarding their premises and ways of working once restrictions are lifted,” said Richard Burge, CEO of the LCCI. “It’s about what business has judged best for the bottom line or productivity of their company.”
The survey of 520 business leaders revealed that the main reason for employees being concerned about returning to the office is the possibility of contracting Covid-19 during their commute.
Research from LinkedIn has also revealed that over two-third of UK employees said their employer expects them to come back to the office. However, nearly half said they would prefer to work both from home and in the office.
