Four out of ten of those in Scotland do not expect to work from home at all once they’re able to return to the office. Across the UK, the equivalent figure was 38%.

There is a greater inclination in Scotland for a mixed approach, with 31% saying they would work from home for less than half the week, or on an ad hoc basis. This compared to 27% nationally.

Among Scottish workers, 38% said they missed socialising with colleagues, while 34% missed getting out of the house or going into town. A further 23% said they didn’t like the lack of a physical distinction between work and leisure.
