The Office of National Statistics have released some interesting new figures, illustrating the proportion of working adults reporting working from home from May 2020 to May 2021

I was not surprised to read that "of working adults currently homeworking, 85% wanted to use a "hybrid" approach of both home and office working in future". 

I did, however, think the rise in homeworking of ten percentage points from 2019 (27%) to 2020 (37%) was surprisingly small. 

Recently, I have been advising more clients across different sectors on implementing hybrid working policies and their approach to formal flexible working requests in this new world which is emerging.  

However, there are some tricky, technical and untested questions that still need to be addressed. For more information and advice about implementing hybrid working policies for your business, please get in touch with me here.
