It’s been almost 2 months since the coronavirus pandemic put the world into lockdown, and confined us almost entirely to our own homes. Lockdown has forced office workers to adapt to an entirely “working from home” regime.

It’s clear that this pandemic is accelerating trends that were already present, with remote working being one of these. What AREF FutureGen would like to know is whether remote working is a significant change for our members, and indeed whether it has been a welcome one. We’re also considering how this may affect our usage of real estate going forward.

We’d appreciate 1 minute of your time to fill out the below survey on how Covid-19 has affected your way of working. We’ve had an amazing response to the survey so far, if you haven’t already responded, please click below. 

The results of this survey will be published in a short whitepaper, put together by the AREF FutureGen Committee, to look at the effect of remote working policies and whether these should be retained in the future.

Thank you for your help.
