Remote and Hybrid working

When the pandemic began, the world was thrust into a remote working setup. It became clear that many appreciated the time they got back without a commute to contend with. To attract and retain talent, many companies are getting on board with a hybrid working model. Our respondents shared that 36% work 1-2 days in the office, while 15% work 1-2 days from home. Interestingly, 42% are still fully remote. There are plenty more insights regarding the impact of Covid-19, which are available in the full report.

Happiness in the digital industry

The huge changes in the way we work mean happiness and mental health are more important than ever. We asked respondents ‘How happy are you in your current role?’ on a scale of 1 to 100. Has happiness improved?

The results show that the average number is 70/100, an improvement on last year’s result of 63/100. We hope that this will continue to move in the right direction, with a happy digital industry looking forward to a brighter working life!
