One in three workers to be offered homeworking option
Homeworking has quickly become the norm for many
More than one in three employers will allow their staff to work from home when the lockdown ends in what will represent a major shift in working patterns.
A survey has revealed that 52% of Scottish employees now work from home and 36% of companies will be more likely to grant requests for homeworking.
Many businesses have been able to continue working to similar and, in some cases, enhanced output levels during the lockdown. Some report higher productivity as employers devote less time to travelling and meetings.
Firms have also reported big savings in costs of energy, other office-related expenditure and a reduction in absenteeism.
