The chart of the week looks at the percentage of employees who have worked from home over the past 4 weeks. The trend is clear and makes sense. As we have moved further away from the initial appearance of COVID, more and more workers have returned to the office. The different statistics in various industries also makes a lot of sense. Buildings and grounds maintenance have remained low with a remote presence this entire time, while computer and mathematical computations have remained the highest industry with remote employees. This ongoing trend is an area to keep an eye on moving forward as many employers and employees have a preference towards each work style. This dynamic may also change further as longer-term office leases start to expire and employers have the choice of how much space they need.
