The COVID-19 pandemic has had innumerable negative effects on the UK workforce.
Devastating employee health, economic inactivity, forced furloughs, and declining customer footfall are just some of the ways in which workers have been impacted by the pandemic.
However, one positive to come from coronavirus is the increased viability of remote working.
Whilst the majority of companies were opposed to the concept of their workforce carrying out tasks remotely,
new research from CV-Library has revealed that the increased activity and worker wellbeing at this time have swayed some opinions.
And for those still opposed to working from home, the choice may be out of their hands if they want to source the best talent.
The majority (51.3%) of Brits are more likely to consider a remote-working job following lockdown; with searches to remote jobs increasing by 222.4% since last year.
