We surveyed over 1,000 employees on their experience of working from home during coronavirus, and—with this in mind—how they’d like to work in the future.

We’re delighted to announce that results are now available in our “Should we ditch the office?” report, live on the HubbleHQ website! Check it out below:


Should we ditch the office report

In it, we’ve crunched the numbers and found some pretty fascinating insights on the future of work. For instance, did you know that:

86% of employees now want to work remotely AT LEAST once a week…

…but only 15% want to do so every day? 

76% feel as productive, if not more so, at home…

…but 71% still think their company should have an office of some sort?

What else is in the report?

In the full report, which you can read freely on our site (no download necessary!), you’ll find detailed insights into:

  • What employees have liked most about working from home
  • What they’ve disliked about working from home
  • What would significantly improve their WFH experience
  • How and where employees now want to work in the future
  • What this means for employers
  • What this means for the office space industry

and much, much more.
