Few workers who work from home want full-time return to the office

Half of workers now working from home at least some of the time, according to a new poll from YouGov. Its survey finds that half of workers say they are working from home - one in six workers say they do so the whole time and a third report doing so some of the time. The remaining 50% say they never do.

Compared to December 2021, 43% of workers said they worked from home. Most of the change is in the “WFH some of the time” category, up ten points from 23%. 

Around 29% of workers in the new study said they would prefer work to work from home all the time, while 43% said some of the time (just over a fifth said they never want to work from home).

Among those who work from home all the time at the moment, only 15% want to switch to only working from home "some of the time", and just 1% want to revert to go back to the office full-time. The figures are similar for those working from home some of the time.

However, only 40% of those who never work from home are happy with their current arrangement - another 34% want to be able to work from home some of the time, while 14% never want to go back to the office again.
