How lockdown has changed work, and the future of working from home

People across the country are returning to their workplaces as Government advice on working from home changes and the furlough scheme winds down.

At the peak of the pandemic, 9.5million people were furloughed and around 50 per cent of people were working from home – where previously no more than 30 per cent had tried it, according to figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS).

A third of us worked shorter hours thanks to the new arrangements, while a third worked for longer.

Now InYourArea.co.uk and Fish4Jobs.co.uk are running a nationwide survey to find out how your work life, and home life, have changed through the lockdown.

We want to help the country find out whether people are still working from home; how companies have grown, shrunk or disappeared and what people think about everything from job security to commuting.

We’ll find out whether working from home has saved you money, and whether you feel safe returning to your workplace – and we’ll also be asking questions about how much you now use local services compared to city centre retailers.

Answer a few quick questions in our survey to help work out how the world of work has changed in the last six months – and what the future could hold.

If you can’t see the survey above please follow this link to find the questions.
