"Undoubtedly the Covid-19 pandemic has initiated dramatic changes to how we work,with 21% of responding businesses reporting >90% of employees are now working from home. When asked on the expected return date to the office, and taking account that survey responses were gathered over the last two weeks of September and before the current public health guidance advise, 19% reported that employees were at that stage returning to the office with more returning in the coming 2-3 months, however 18% expected this return from January 2021 onwards."
