DSA research indicate a reduction in days spent in the office likely

Research by DSA Connect found that one in ten office workers believe they will not go back into the office even for one day a week when restrictions end, while another 9% don’t expect to return to the office until next year at the earliest. 

Those who do go back are facing massive changes, with a third (30%) of workers saying their office has been closed permanently or is being reorganised. Half of respondents say their office has been shut or will shut, while the other half say employers are looking for smaller offices. 

The study found that many of those who do go back aren’t happy about it – around 25% say they’ve enjoyed remote working and do not want to change while another 12% are worried about the risks of catching COVID-19.
