Working patterns have undergone a vast overhaul since the pandemic. As of May 2022, nearly a quarter (24%) of workers are hybrid working, splitting their time between working from home and the office, while 14% are working exclusively from home. There’s also evidence many workers are doing the occasional day from home. In spring 2022, 38% of working adults reported having worked from home at some point over the past seven days – up from 12% before Covid-19.
This shift towards hybrid working means we’re more reliant than ever on our tech to keep us connected. And it also means devices such as laptops are at greater risk of being lost and/or damaged as they are regularly moved from location to location.
