Companies have a tough decision to make on whether lack of productivity from staff at home can be solved by financial savings from smaller offices

It’s no wonder everybody wants to work from home; research from the Office of National Statistics show that home workers only spend six and a half hours a day doing what their paid for compared to the seven hours and quarter if they were in the office and under the beady eye of the boss.
The facts were taken from a thousand Brits who were quizzed about how they spent their time over the past year.
This puts bosses in a quandary. They want their workforce in the office but at the same time the lack of productivity may not be such a financial problem as the money saved from smaller offices, especially in London, would far outstrip the productivity issue.

One medium sized company I know saved £1million a year (a fortune considering its size) by literally moving a couple of miles but halving their space as they arranged for their workforce to start only coming into the office three days a week.
The Prime Minister will consult this summer on potentially giving a right to some workers not to come into the office.
I would caution such a law and I would also caution anybody with the slightest ambition- either for more pay or more responsibility- to start spending huge amounts of time away from the office.
That is where the decisions made and its where you will catch the boss’s eye for your talents. Being on zoom will not have the same effect. Trust me.
