More than half of workers in Britain do not expect to return to work fully in offices


(MENAFN – Al-Anbaa) A survey concluded that more than half of workers said they did not expect to return to work for five days in offices.

The British newspaper “Daily Mail” reported that a report by the Tuk-Tuk entitled “Lessons of Closure” concluded that 58% of the workforce said they feel that they have become more productive as a result of working from home, after imposing lockdown measures to contain the outbreak of the Coronavirus.

Managers also agreed to the same principle, and 30% of them said the changes had resulted in enhanced productivity.

The survey concluded that the new work arrangements for millions of workers, according to which they do not move much, have made many resort to learning a new skill or hobby.

40% said that they watched an educational video on the Internet during the closure period, while 16% said that they registered themselves in an educational course via the Internet.

The survey also showed that one in four working from home began to learn a new language or new cooking skills.

The survey indicated that internet consumption during the shutdown increased by 40% compared to the same period last year. The telecommunications group Tok Tok said Internet consumption levels were still high, despite the easing of restrictions and the reopening of bars and restaurants.

“The lockdown period in Britain has seen a rebound in the skills and productivity of home workers,” said Tristia Harrison, CEO of Toktok Group.

“While people are working from home, they are also learning, from new languages, to cooking, to gaining technological skills. It seems that as we work flexibly, we become more productive,” she added.
