With the pandemic having changed the way people work, new research has found that 35 per cent of employees have never been to their workplace.

The Talent Summit Work Survey report also found that just over a quarter of staff in Ireland currently work in the office full time.


According to the report, 26 per cent of employees work in the office full time while 44 per cent work remotely. The remaining 30 per cent currently have a hybrid working situation.

According to Talent Summit founder and Sigmar CCO, Robert Mac Giolla Phádraig, Ireland is at the forefront of the changing work model globally: “As a central hub of some of the world’s most progressive and innovative companies, Ireland is now emerging as home to companies who are at the forefront of moulding, shaping and shifting how, where, when and by whom work is done as we emerge from the pandemic.

“While remote and hybrid working seems to be working for the employer with just 15 per cent finding it a hindrance, my concern is that we have an entire generation of workers who are missing out on the social and psychological benefits of working in a communal environment with friends and colleagues.”

The new figures come as the Right to Request Remote Working legislation is expected to give 53 per cent of the workforce the right to request remote working.


Of those in a position to be able to work from home, it is expected that 68 per cent will choose to work remotely.
