  • Exploring the notion that employees can work from anywhere, the proportion of UK staff that believe remote working to be a prerequisite rather than a perk increased by 128%, meaning that management must adjust hiring strategies accordingly.
  • Over two-thirds (70%) of UK respondents recognise that their organisation is realising the benefits of remote work and can’t go back to the way they used to be, but nearly four in ten (39%) of decision makers surveyed worry their team won’t stay on task when working remotely.
  • Alongside Vanson Bourne, VMware surveyed 2,850 respondents across EMEA (950 HR decision makers, 950 IT decision makers and 950 business decision makers), across 12 countries – UK (600), France (450), Germany (450), Italy (150), Netherlands, (150), Russia (150), Poland (150), Norway (150), Sweden (150), Spain (150), UAE (150) and Saudi Arabia (150).
