Saving time and money working from home

Mon 27 Jul 2020


  • During lockdown it was reported that 60% of the workforce were working from home. With the average daily commute in the UK 59 minutes and an average worker spending £45 per week, a lot of time and money has been saved in lockdown.
  • If the average worker saved £45 a week for the last 18 weeks, that is a saving of £810. As well as financial benefits, workers have saved on average 88.5 hours of commute time.
  • London workers have saved the most time and money, £58 a week and 79 minutes a day. Scottish workers normally have the lowest weekly spend whilst the North East have the shortest journeys.
  • The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development expect the proportion of staff mainly working from home to increase from 9% pre-lockdown to 22% post-lockdown. Such changes may cause a shift in property requirements.
