Westfield Health have carried out in-depth research into the rifts COVID-19 has caused and the changing expectations of employers and the workplace.
Their recent in-depth, 2,000-person study looks at the physical and mental wellbeing of the country, with a focus on our changing experiences, attitudes and expectations of work.
The report has identified that the UK workforce is divided by their lockdown experiences and the workplace will be one of the first places to feel the consequences of those divides.
Businesses will need to focus on bridging these tensions and rifts, as well as increased expectations around wellbeing and ways of working to return to productivity.
Key findings include:
