  • More than 40 per cent of employed Australians worked from home in August.
  • Not surprisingly, professional workers and managers were working from home the most, at 65 per cent.
  • Just four months prior, in May 2021, 23.6 per cent of workers were casual and, before the pandemic in February 2020, almost a quarter (24.1 per cent) of the workforce was in casual roles.
