UK Workers Want To Return To Offices Outside Of The City

A new survey from Clockwise has found that the majority of Gen Z workers may prefer to work in an office.

This revelation comes as the UK government weighs whether to grant workers the right to work from home permanently. This proposal would prevent employers from forcing staff to return to the office unless it is essential.

However, the survey finds that 30% of respondents miss the socialization of the workplace, while some are having trouble separating their professional and personal lives.

Additionally, 71% stated that the sense of community in an office makes for a more productive workforce.

Although many Gen Z and Millennial workers expressed wanting to return to the office, the survey noted that this does not make their return to cities a necessity. In fact, two-third of Gen Z professionals said they are staying in the suburbs after relocating out of urban areas during the pandemic.

This highlights the importance of companies incorporating regional and suburban hubs so employees who have moved have an office to come into, without a long commute.

In fact, 73% of respondents said they would prefer a local satellite office to prevent lengthy commutes.

“The trend towards regionality, where people want to work and set up businesses has been a long time coming, and this has been hugely accelerated by the pandemic,” said Alex Brunner, COO of Clockwise. “These survey results vindicate our approach of focusing primarily on the cities outside of the usual business centres.”
