New data from IWG shows that workers in Britain are increasingly warming up to a three-day office week.
The hybrid model has emerged as one of the most popular work arrangements in the post-pandemic era. As people learn the perks and downsides of both in-person and remote working, they are eager to find the best of both worlds.
According to the analysis of 300 IWG locations, UK employees prefer to come into the office on Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Thursdays, with these days seeing 23% more visits than Mondays and Fridays.
“The data shows there is strong appetite to spend part of the time in an office environment, particularly local flex spaces, and that the era of long daily commutes is well and truly over,” said Mark Dixon, CEO of IWG.
While the trend of shorter work weeks is predicted to remain a pillar in the global workforce, IWG did not disclose whether this change in activity is impacting its occupancy levels or income stream.
