Community Report Overview

Over the last two years, the workforce has witnessed a major increase in working remotely.

However, this is often viewed as an enforced acceleration of a shift that was already underway – driven by the perceived advantages of hybrid working. Many employees were entirely office-based a few years ago now work remotely at least part-time.

This has brought fundamental changes, not only in the way people work, but also in their personal life. For example, the shift has brought differences in home life, exercise, shopping, food choices, and even personal hygiene habits.

Using responses from 7,985 online respondents from Kantar Profiles Audience Network across eight global markets (including US, UK, Brazil, Germany, France, China, Singapore and India), this study sets out to explore new trends and the positive and negative aspects of these changes for the employee and company.

It also explores the impact hybrid work has on workers’ physical and emotional wellbeing, in addition to the expectations employees have of their employers.

Explore our findings here on:

  • Sentiments towards hybrid working and expectations
  • Impact of remote working on physical and emotional health
  • Lifestyle trends for hybrid workers
  • Benefits of flexibility for the employee and employer
