This publication “Personal and Work-Life Balance Survey – Remote Working“ is the third and final publication of a series of three publications presenting the results of the Personal and Work-Life Balance Survey. The Personal and Work-Life Balance Survey collects information on how we balance the different aspects of our lives, including work and our personal life.

The Personal and Work-Life Balance Survey was carried out in Quarter 3 2021, when there were varying levels of COVID-19 restrictions. The advent of COVID-19 would have seen an increase in remote working and this survey asked respondents about their availing of remote working during the 12 months prior to interview (since Quarter 3 2020) and also their availing of remote working pre COVID-19. This publication today covers employees’ availing of remote working and the factors such as size of firm, occupation, etc., that might influence the availability of remote working for workers.
