Hybrid Work Commission 2023
The Commission on Hybrid and Remote Work was set up to examine and make recommendations on how the UK Government can respond to the rise in hybrid and remote working to the advantage of people, communities, and the broader UK economy.
The economic analysis has found that hybrid working has encouraged large numbers of professionally educated women to move to full time work – particularly mothers. For decades, women have worked fewer hours than they would ideally like because of the challenges of managing children and other dependents. The research shows that:
- Women that mainly work from home are much more likely to work full-time than those that work mainly away from home;
- That is even more the case in households with dependent children;
- The industry data shows large increases in the share of women in professional services (banking, ICT and other prof services) working full-time between 2019 and 2023, even more so when we look at those with kids.
