National Work from Home Day - Yello
National Work from Home Day

Date

This national Work from Home Day, at Yello, we’re celebrating the new and exciting ways we’ve seen how businesses have changed their communication ways. Businesses globally have taken their companies through the last year with a whole host of changes, working out the best ways for remote working and giving their employees the connectivity solutions to set up their ‘home office’.

Changing the way we work

With employees being told to work from home, a lot of companies were not ready and set up for this change of environment.

We commissioned some research to find out some more about the telecoms landscape and found a lot of interesting data regarding employees working from home:

In 2019, only 5% of the UK workforce mainly worked from home. At the height of the first wave of the pandemic, between 9-20 April 2020, 45% of employed adults in the UK had worked from home at some point during the previous week!

A lot of businesses and employees faced working from home setup issues during this time. 11% of people said they didn’t have the relevant software to facilitate working from home. While 20% said that reliable internet was only arranged once the lockdown had been announced and 4% didn’t have access to a reliable connection at all.
