Some interesting data from our Lockdown Surveys

Lockdown Pulse Survey

Productivity of home working has important policy implications. Businesses that were previously reluctant to look at home working may find data like this persuasive - that the experience of those who have been forced into homeworking due to lockdown has been positive, with 43% of people saying they are more or much more productive as a result.

Lockdown Pulse Survey

This data suggests a remarkable flexibility of the people surveyed, that in these times of crisis there is the openness to alternative working arrangements that may help to build the resilience of the business for which they work.

Lockdown Pulse Survey

Now that we are over the 'peak' of the virus, it looks as though the majority of people are okay about returning to the new normal. We were interested to know why 14% were uncomfortable with returning to normal. We looked at social distancing measures being implemented by their employer, and we looked at sanitation measures being implemented by their employer. Neither of these were relevant. We then looked for other things and found that of the 14% who were uncomfortable about returning to work, all of them (100% of them) reported that the changed working arrangements '...had worked out well for me...'

Lockdown Pulse Survey

Work related travel does not appear to be a major issue for people. The lockdown appears to have worked out well for the majority of people surveyed, and now that we are nearing the end of lockdown, the large majority of people appear to be okay about returning to something close to normal.
