Managers say working from home is here to stay

Krishan Shah, Nicholas Bloom, Philip Bunn, Paul Mizen, Gregory Thwaites, and Ivan Yotzov analyse new firm-level data to explore future remote work trends. Managers expect 2028 remote work levels to mirror those of 2023, but aggregate working from home could rise as younger firms are more inclined to adopt it and they are likely to grow more quickly in the future. The research also links higher remote work levels to greater productivity and lower wage growth, by comparing survey results with detailed firm accounts data.
