Fewer than one in ten companies have told staff they must come back to the office full-time, new data reveals as employees around the world insist on working from home.
The majority of businesses surveyed by estate agent CBRE expect to push for a return to more regular office life in the coming months, but just 6pc are planning to enforce full-time commuting.
The survey of 120 companies across various sectors found 39pc of bosses expect their workers will be at the office for three or more days a week.
Richard Holberton, head of EMEA occupier research at the CBRE, said: “Companies must now decide how much personal autonomy to allow as well as the balance between office and home.”
The figures, set to be published next week, come as employees around the world openly revolt over back-to-work plans even if they are not forced to return full-time.
