While homeworking was once seen as a treat or a rarity, figures show that there are now 9.9 million people working from home in the UK – double the pre-Covid number

A recent report from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) analysed homeworking levels before and after the pandemic, revealing that almost a third of workers are now based at home.

Between October to December 2019 and January to March 2022, homeworking in the UK more than doubled, increasing by 108.8 per cent (up 5.2 million), from 14.5 per cent (4.7 million) to 30.3 per cent (9.9 million).

The number of homeworkers has risen by more than 50 per cent in all UK regions.

Peterborough-based Anne Corder Recruitment says now is as important as ever to ensure that employees are supported in their home/hybrid working role, with employers maintaining a duty of care to their team.
