90% believe home working should be part of the new-normal, according to a survey carried out by the Syndicom trade union. 

But companies need to have a duty to workers who may be spending more time at home for work.

The union says there should be set frameworks for employees with clear working hours and help for setting up a home office.  

But it’s not all trouble free. More than 60% say they do miss socializing with colleagues and some say being at home for lengthy periods could be detrimental to family harmony. 

But on the whole – workers say they’re more productive and their work-life balance is improved.
