The fourth Corona wave rolls over Germany. Companies have been asked by the federal government to bring their employees into the Home office to send, as long as their work routine allows it. This repeats what was already true in the previous Corona waves: For many employees, everyday work takes place in living rooms or at kitchen tables. By no means all employees who now work from home again have a room of their own in which to pursue their daily work routine undisturbed.
One in three employees in a home office does not have his or her own workroom or office. This is the result of a representative survey by the Trendence Institute and the St. Oberholz Consulting under 5.368 employees. The previously unpublished study is available to our editorial team.
Home office: Almost one in three works in the living room
23 percent of respondents said they work from home. Around 28 percent of them use the living room, 10.2 percent use the kitchen or dining room table. According to the study, 66 percent of those who work from home have a study room.
