How many British employees are now working from home?

The Skillcast WFH Insights Survey May 2020 conducted by YouGov found that 49% of employees in Great Britain are currently working from home all or most of the time, with London standing out from all other regions.

In the largest survey of its kind, we asked 4,002 employees about their current work situation.

Nearly 4 out of 10 surveyed (39%) said they are currently working from home as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and a further 10% reported working from home both before and during the outbreak.

However, we found large variations by region, company size, industry sector and age groups.
