The survey of 500 Irish office workers, conducted by Censuswide, asked office workers about their plans for when COVID restrictions are eased.

Paul Connell, CEO of Pure Telecom, said: “Two years have passed and younger workers may feel that they are missing out on the social aspects of being in the office.

The report found that 4% of young workers aged 18-23 had never worked from home during the pandemic.

The report shows Wicklow, Donegal and cork will have a high rate of return to the office, while employees in Tipperary, Louth and Limerick like Work from home.

Connell adds: “More and more facilities across the country are connected to high-speed broadband and expect mixture Working makes this all the more necessary.
