6 in 10 nervous about returning to work following lockdown.

A nationwide YouGov survey, commissioned by One Year No Beer, has revealed that as much as 60% of the UK workers who are no longer travelling to their usual place of work and now working from home are nervous about returning to work following lockdown.

The survey also identified that women surveyed appear to be considerably more nervous with 70% of them opening up about their fears of returning to the workplace, opposed to 49% of men.

61% of 18-34 workers who are not currently in their usual place of work agreed that they were nervous about returning and surprisingly fears were lowest amongst those aged 55 years and over.

I think a lot of people will have formed habits during this time they wouldn’t have before (I know I certainly have), and some may be challenging to shake. In hard times it’s easy to let things creep in that you wouldn’t normally do and if people are anxious about returning to work, the concern here is that it impacts on their health and wellbeing.

How do you feel about returning to work?
