Despite new health and safety measures, only 28% of office workers in the retail, catering and leisure sector feel safe returning to work after the pandemic according to new research from insurance provider Protectivity.

43% of those surveyed enjoyed working from home, and more than a third said they would consider changing to a part remote role in the future.

Although 22% are looking forward to resuming face-to-face meetings with colleagues, office chatter “isn’t something that has been missed quite as much”, with almost a quarter (24%) admitting to getting distracted by colleagues talking.
