Nearly half of London companies plan to keep working from home up to five days a week after the coronavirus pandemic. They want more to move to a so-called home office, rather than larger companies. According to Bloomberg, this emerged from a survey of 520 business leaders commissioned by the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The vast majority of companies said employees fear that covidem-19 would not infect them in the workplace, but on commuting.
Most economists agree that working from home is likely to continue. This could mean that the number of people in big cities will fall and that the revenues of companies dependent on people attending offices will decrease.
According to another LinkedIn survey, more than two-thirds of employees say their employer expects them to return to the office. The busiest office days are supposed to be Monday and Tuesday. Almost half of the respondents said that they wanted to divide their time between home and office.
“Hybrid work will also help make jobs accessible to people who have previously been excluded due to distance, disability or responsibility for providing care,” Janine Chamberlin said on LinkedIn’s job contact network. She is responsible for Britain.
The downside of enabling work from home is greater substitutability. According to a report by the Institute for Global Change, six million jobs in Britain that can be created from anywhere will be at risk. They could also be taken care of by people abroad. The organization, founded by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, says a “mass experiment” with teleworking can lead companies to keep only the key employees they need in place to save money.
