Technology & home working ONS study

We keep a close eye on the Office of National Statistics and found their latest release on the impact of home working fascinating.


Here are some of the key points & a link to the entire article.


Main points


  • Home working opportunities vary significantly between industries, with 10% of employees within the accommodation and food services industry reporting having ever worked from home (in 2019) compared with 53% of those in the information and communication industry.


  • The extent to which an employee can work from home depends on whether a specific physical environment, tools, or proximity to other people are required for the role.


  • Technology can be an enabling power for homeworking, providing employees have the access to, and skills required for, technology.


  • The E-commerce Survey shows that in 2018, less than half of all employees were provided with a portable device for work, except in the information and communication industry where around 60% of employees were provided with a portable device.


  • The Office of Communications (OFCOM) found superfast broadband coverage reached 95% of residential homes in the UK in September 2019.


  • In the accommodation and food services, and retail industries, over 85% of businesses using social media, used it to develop brand image and for marketing purposes.


  • Businesses with 10 or more employees were more likely to employ ICT specialists than smaller businesses.
