Remote Working During COVID-19

The COVID-19 crisis catapulted hundreds of thousands of employees and their employers into a work pattern and routine vastly different to their normal daily work experience.  This radical change happened suddenly and for the vast majority the change effectively occurred overnight.

While some employees had experience of remote working, many found themselves operating remote working without any time to plan, negotiate, organise and set-up remote working in conjunction with their employer and manager.

Researchers from the Whitaker Institute and the Western Development Commission (WDC) undertook a national survey to gather data on employees’ experiences of remote working during COVID-19.
