Working from home: latest figures

Lots to digest in the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics in their analysis of homeworkers and hybrid working between September 2022 and January 2023. Here are the main points:

  • Among working adults who have worked in the last seven days, 16% worked from home only and 28% reported both working from home and travelling to work

  • Workers in the highest income band, those who were educated to degree level or above, and those in professional occupations were most likely to report home only or hybrid working

  • Self-employed workers were more than twice as likely to work from home only (32%) compared to employees (14%).

  • London residents reported the highest levels of hybrid working across Great Britain, with 4 in 10 workers both working from home and travelling to work.

In the most recent period (25 January to 5 February 2023) around 40% of working adults reported having worked from home at some point in the past seven days.

And these are the authors' general thoughts on where we stand:

"Throughout 2022 the percentage of working adults reporting having worked from home has varied between 25% and 40%, without a clear upward or downward trend, indicating that homeworking is resilient to pressures such as the end of restrictions and increases in the cost of living."
