It’s no surprise that the pandemic has led to insights on how we want to live our lives. This also goes for working behavior and preferences. The trend is clear: working fulltime 5 days a week in an office belongs to the past.
In October 2020, Stora Enso initiated a market study on pandemic related changes in attitudes towards for example working from home, commuting and copy paper use. Answers from 3400 participants from the UK, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Sweden showed that 54 % preferred a mix of home and office working, and 31 % preferred full time home working. Despite this quite clear preference, 83 % of these respondents expected to return to an office environment within 3 or 6 months.
One year later, the preference for remote working seems to remain strong.According to a follow up study conducted by Stora Enso and Multicopy ,the full results will be presented in full shortly, the preferred mix seems to be 3 days at the office and 2 days working from home office. Companies are having to adapt to this preference. According to PwC statistics from January 2021, “employees want to return to the office more slowly than employers expect”.
Multicopy is currently compiling the results from a follow up-study to the one conducted last year, on post-pandemic working and printing behavior. So keep an eye out for more interesting facts and insights coming up soon!
