Save Time & Money Working From Home

During lockdown it was reported that 60% of the workforce were working from home. With the average daily commute in the UK 59 minutes and an average worker spending £45 per week, a lot of time and money has been saved in lockdown. If the average worker saved £45 a week for the last 18 weeks, that is a saving of £810. As well as financial benefits, workers have saved on average 88.5 hours of commute time. London workers have saved the most time and money, £58 a week and 79 minutes a day. Scottish workers normally have the lowest weekly spend whilst the North East have the shortest journeys. The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development expect the proportion of staff mainly working from home to increase from 9% pre-lockdown to 22% post-lockdown. Such changes may cause a shift in property requirements.
