Work After Lockdown: No Going Back: What we have learned working from home through the COVID-19 pandemic

Work After Lockdown: No Going Back: What we have learned working from home through the COVID-19 pandemic
The report presents findings from three waves of data collection, summarising the learnings and implications for employers and policy-makers. The UKRI/ESRC Work After Lockdown project followed individuals and organisations over 18 months of the pandemic, and studied how lockdown-driven working from home was changing how people wanted to work in the future, and how organisations were responding to and learing from this experience. While our first report (Transitions and Tensions) focused more on adjustments to mass working from home, this report looks at emerging from the pandemic: how organisations have been planning returns to offices, and what they have learnt from the extended period of working from home. Themes discussed in the report include leading organisational change, managing performance and productivity in teams, learning and development, promoting inclusion through new working practices, and preferences for hybrid and flexible working.

Abstract

The report presents findings from three waves of data collection, summarising the learnings and implications for employers and policy-makers. The UKRI/ESRC Work After Lockdown project followed individuals and organisations over 18 months of the pandemic, and studied how lockdown-driven working from home was changing how people wanted to work in the future, and how organisations were responding to and learing from this experience. While our first report (Transitions and Tensions) focused more on adjustments to mass working from home, this report looks at emerging from the pandemic: how organisations have been planning returns to offices, and what they have learnt from the extended period of working from home. Themes discussed in the report include leading organisational change, managing performance and productivity in teams, learning and development, promoting inclusion through new working practices, and preferences for hybrid and flexible working.
