Network data highlights remote working rise

New network data from TalkTalk has revealed a significant rise in the use of online communications at home in what the communications provider described as a “hybrid working boom”.

According to the research from TalkTalk, 40% of office workers have moved home or considered moving during the pandemic. The network data, which covers the past year, showed that the south east and east of England have seen an increased internet usage of 46%.

Speaking exclusively in the latest issue of Land Mobile, Wayne Mason, UK and Ireland B2B lead at Logitech, said “it is becoming increasingly unlikely that companies will go back to the old way of doing things”. He said: “As the world returns to normal, we’ll see a movement towards ‘flexible as standard’, or hybrid working. [This will be due to] acknowledged productivity benefits, as well as improvements to work/life balance.”

The new TalkTalk report supports this belief as the researchers claimed that more than eight in 10 (86%) business leaders interviewed said their employees were in favour of flexible working policies, while 80% agree that it’s a good idea for the business and employees. Alongside this, 85% of them expect to operate some form of hybrid working system moving forward.
