Lockdown survey

Our lockdown survey, published across this title and 150 others across the UK last week, gives an insight into how the crisis has impacted people in [Place], and what they would like to see happen in the coming weeks and months.

In total we asked readers 25 questions on their attitude towards the lockdown, and of these two focused on how people feel about working from home.

33 per cent of Express readers who completed our survey said they have had to work from home for the first time or to a much greater extent due to the coronavirus outbreak.

By comparison, on a national level, 40% answered that they haven’t, 34% said they have and 25% said this question wasn’t applicable.

We also asked to what extent Express would like to continue working from home - even after restrictions are lifted.

The majority who took part in the survey said they would like to work from home some of the time.

Nationally, 43% answered ‘I’d like to work from home some of the time’, 25% answered ‘I’d like to work from home most of the time’, 18% said ‘I don’t want to work from home at all’ and 9% answered ‘I’d like to work entirely from home’.
