Should you have the legal right to WFH?

Please help with this year’s Be-IT Research Project: The future of WFH (only takes four minutes!)

For most of us in the tech sector, WFH is now a fixture of life. Earlier this year, our own research showed that 95% of tech professionals would refuse a role that didn’t include some home working. The promise of reduced commuting costs and a better work-life balance means that today, a year since the final Covid restrictions were lifted, average office occupancy is still nowhere near 2019 levels, sitting at just 34% according to some estimates.

But that doesn’t mean WFH is for everyone. Human interaction – being in the same actual room – is good for personal development and communication. And total isolation is bad news for personal welfare and mental health. So it’s maybe no surprise that some are questioning whether the downsides outweigh the benefits.

CEOs like JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon are insisting that senior employees now return to five days in the office. Meanwhile, Elon Musk has claimed working-from-home is morally wrong and accused the “laptop classes” of “living in la la land.”

On the other side of the fence, the Labour party have suggested that employees should have the legal right to work from home and, with a general election on the horizon, are considering it as a manifesto pledge.

We want to know what you think

This summer’s tech sector survey on the future of WFH and the implications it has for individuals and businesses contains a comprehensive array of questions which will allow us to find out what you – our clients and candidates – think.


As last year, the survey is being conducted by an independent third-party and is completely anonymous. According to SurveyMonkey, it should only take you four minutes to complete. Thank you, in advance, for your help. The results will be available towards the end of June and we shall share them with you once the final report is ready.
