DescriptionBart Van Ark, professor of productivity studies at the University of Manchester, said it was too soon assess the overall impact of working from home.

But he added: ‘I would say we have learned to work from home in a way that avoids significant productivity losses but that’s as far as I would go.

‘Now that we see this sort of improvement in Q4 over Q3 it seems to suggest that move back to work from home [because of Omicron’ didn’t really impact productivity much.’
