In Wave 60 the BICS asked businesses about the status of their workforce. Note that businesses were asked about the status of their workforce in June 2022.
Workforce Status Question: In June 2022, approximately what percentage of your business's workforce were:
- working from a designated workspace
- made permanently redundant
- using a hybrid model of working
- working from home
- on sick leave or not working due to coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, self-isolation or quarantine
Figure 9: In June 2022, 68.3% of the workforce were estimated to be working from a designated workspace, 22.0% to be using a hybrid model of working and 6.2% working from home. In the latest period, the industry sectors with the lowest proportion of the workforce working from a designated workspace were the Information & Communication and Professional, Scientific & Technical Activities sectors, estimated at 17.0% and 35.3% respectively – with these sectors having the highest rates of hybrid working and home working.
