A single day working from home could save workers up to £300

According to research by Banner, a single day of home working per week could save the average person between £22.92 and £28.65 each month, or around £297.96 per year, when factoring in average commuting costs, a morning coffee, and lunch.

The data, collated by the workplace supplies company, shows the potential for hybrid working to take the sting out of the cost-of-living crisis.  As businesses in every sector struggle to fill positions, hybrid working has become a HR must-have.

However, many businesses rushed into a hybrid working model during the 2020 lockdown and are still yet to fully optimise and balance cost-saving home working days, with the social, collaborative, and productivity benefits of working in an office, according to Banner.

Vivian Slater, Private Sector Managing Director from Banner said, “hybrid was forced onto many procurement, FM and IT teams as a result of the pandemic, and many have struggled to come away from the coalface since that time and really optimise it.  But, done properly, getting a mix of home and office-based working right has real potential to lessen the impact of the rising cost of living for employees while protecting their wellbeing.  From a business leader’s perspective, that means higher productivity and better staff retention at a time when those things could not be more crucial.

“To make a hybrid approach work for you, however, will take some connected thinking; there are some incredible tech and processing solutions out there that can make hybrid working seamless, but it’s about knowing what systems and products will complement each other. Now is the time to sit down with a smart workplace supplies partner and put in place a robust hybrid working approach.”
