Our 1500-person study looked at the physical and mental wellbeing of the country, with a focus on our changing experiences, attitudes and expectations of work.

From more than a third believing that furloughed colleagues have it easy to almost half saying parents use their kids as an excuse to do less, it revealed tensions and rifts between colleagues that will challenge employers as people return to the workplace.

As well as asking employees about how they’re feeling, we talked to HR leaders from across the country to find out what their biggest challenges have been, how their teams are responding and how they think our workplaces will change as a result of Covid-19.

Key findings include:

  • Stress (41%), reduced productivity (36%) and loneliness (28%) are the top issues HR teams have been faced with
  • Almost half (46%) have adapted employee wellbeing health practices
  • A fifth have noticed rising tensions between colleagues
  • 60% of HR leaders say it’s likely this will be the end of the office for their organisation
  • Almost six in 10 (58%) say it is likely that most staff will become temporary or freelance
